Policy Formulation
& Validation

througn non-moderated crowd-sourcing



NOMAD is ready to be commercialised

NOMAD project, which was
co-funded by the EC under the FP7 Programme, has reached its end on
December. NOMAD has succeeded in providing its users with a fully
automated tool-suite for modelling, content search and acquisition,
classification and visualization without requiring any particular
expertise or programming knowledge from them.

NOMAD enables policy makers and other users to receive insights to
their proposals from citizens, before turning them into policies,
by providing them with tools that can crawl their opinions in the
social media and collect, as well as analyze spontaneous
argumentation to them.

During last three years, the
partners of the NOMAD project participated in and organized a variety
of events, conferences and workshops, produced scientific publications,
press releases and presentations.
