NOMAD aims to exploit the vast amount of information and insights available throughout Web 2.0 content and introduce it in multiple stages of the policy-making lifecycle to support the definition of the political agenda, the creation, the implementation and the monitoring of policy proposals. To this end, NOMAD will provide decision-makers with automated solutions for content search, selection, acquisition, categorization and visualisation that work in a collaborative form in the policy-making arena.
In the context of NOMAD, IIT will contribute its expertise in knowledge representation and will define the formal data model for creating and storing a machine-readable conceptualisation of policies and their connection to domain concepts. It will also lead the development of an authoring environment for policy building.
Furthermore, IIT –with its experience on linguistic analysis- will lead the activities of information extraction, argument matching and sentiment analysis on web content in order to obtain an accurate view of the public stance (or the stance of groups with specific characteristics) against the policies proposed by the policy makers.

During the focus group, the NOMAD concept was introduced and its related technologies were demonstrated to people involved in policy making procedures.
