Mining and Reasoning with Legal Texts

Funding: European Commission > Horizon 2020
Start Date: Jan. 1, 2016
End Date: Dec. 31, 2019

Description

The MIREL project will create an international and inter-sectorial network to define a formal framework and to develop tools for MIning and REasoning with Legal texts, with the aim of translating these legal texts into formal representations that can be used for querying norms, compliance checking, and decision support. The development of the MIREL framework and tools will be guided by the needs of three industrial partners, and validated by industrial case studies. MIREL promotes mobility and staff exchange between SMEs to academies in order to create an inter-continental interdisciplinary consortium in Law and Artificial Intelligence areas including Natural Language Processing, Computational Ontologies, Argumentation, and Logic & Reasoning.

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) project "MIREL - MIning and REasoning with Legal texts" (http://www.mirelproject.eu) has been retained for funding under the call H2020-MSCA-RISE-2015, with the overall score of 97.20%. University of Luxembourg is the coordinator of MIREL. Dr Livio Robaldo led the writing of the project and he is currently managing its activities.
