Teams are more efficient than groups of individuals, especially when the team adopts a cooperative approach. However, a high level of communication and an established culture are required in order to obtain the benefits of team work. An information system is described that attempts to increase the potential of the team by supporting group communication and interaction. The work focuses on the cooperative filtering of the information used by the group to support the performance of its tasks. The information system aims at reducing the difficulties of group work and increasing the information selection level. Some validation is carried out by means of a couple of experiments with small groups of people working as a team.
