Project short description

The e-POLICY project aims to equip policy makers with integrated models, optimization, visualization, simulation and opinion mining techniques that improve the outcomes of complex global decision making.The main goals of the project are


  • To support policy makers in their decision process across a multi-disciplinary effort aimed at the engineering of a policy making life-cycle that integrates, in a unique way, global and individual perspectives on the decision process.  

•  To evaluate the economic, societal and environmental impacts during policy making (at both the global and individual levels).


•  To derive social impacts through opinion mining on e-participation data  


•  To aid the policy maker, citizens and stakeholders with visualization tools
