Abstract

The authors start by presenting Information Science (IS) that is developed and constitutes object of research and teaching at the University of Porto, Portugal, and they explain accurately the cross-positioning of Information Management (IM), which is also shared with other social sciences and disciplines of technological character. From here, a brief presentation of the origin and nature of Project Management (PM) is exposed to emphasize the need for an effective and fully assumed approach between IM and PM. It is observed that, for specialists in PM, the infocommunicational flows are important and they seek to manage them intuitively, but without feeling obliged to ask for the expertise of specialists in IS and IM, the reverse is true (i.e. there are courses and some interesting adaptations of PM procedures' tools to be applied into informational projects).
