I want a short phrase for "the project that we are working on".

Could it be "our working-on project"?

I'd say "Our current project." Or, in a little context, "We asked our supervisor if we could have more time to work on our current project."

In other contexts you might call it an ongoing project. Or even an active one. – FumbleFingers Jul 25 '12 at 1:57
In addition to what @FumbleFingers has mentioned, our working project is also a valid way of referring to this project. – David Watts Jul 25 '12 at 13:18
