Co-operative Requirements Capture was funded by the SERC, ICL and the DTI. The purpose of the project was to examine how requirements capture teams work together and to assess the feasibility of computer supported distributed working.

The prototype includes a collaborative working platform, intelligent messaging analysis and social awareness tools.
