A new generation of services to citizens, companies, the Public Administration and the institutions that prepare legislative material.

The project started in 2010 with the goal of providing a new generation of services to citizens, companies, the Public Administration and the institutions that prepare legislative material.

  • Dynamics of the law, with frequent updates on regulations
  • Pervasiveness: how to establish a regulation of
  • Transparency and accountability in services
  • Evaluation of the 'impact of the rules on business
  • Management of a network of regulatory documents
  • Interaction between national law and the European
  • Multilingualism generated by various countries belonging to the European Community
Citizens and Companies in need of services (eg., How to get an exemption from paying car tax, or how to open a line of credit at a bank) which need to know the procedures described by rules for entitlement. Offices and banks must provide services in accordance with applicable laws. Companies should be able to plan their strategies to adapt to various changes in the context of law.

ICT4LAW inspired by the above problems to build the core of a new generation of services, deriving precisely from the convergence of ICT with cognitive science and law.
