Description

The ManyLaws Project (EU-wide Legal Text Mining using Big Data Processing Infrastructures) is a platform set up to deliver a set of services for citizens, businesses and administrations in the European Union, Austria and Greece. The Action's overall objective is to enable access to legal information across the European Union and improve the efficacy of decision making in legislative procedures operated by public bodies. Specifically, the Action will set-up a platform (ManyLaws) which will deliver a set of services for citizens, businesses and administrations built upon text mining, advanced processing and semantic analysis of laws of the European Union, Austria, and Greece. The addition of laws from other Member States will be explored and, if possible, implemented. Moreover, these services will be tested within at least two law making procedures of the Greek and Austrian Parliament.
