The e-POLICY project's main aim is to support policy makers in their decision process across a multi-disciplinary effort aimed at engineering the policy making life-cycle. For the first time, global and individual perspectives on the decision process are merged and integrated. The project focuses on regional planning and promotes the assessment of economic, social and environmental impacts during the policy making process (at both the global and individual levels).
EU Community transforms the existing fragmented EU public sphere into an expert community of EU policy stakeholders. This will be achieved by transforming EU policies’ complex system into visual intelligence for all. Then “EU Community” will build on social media to create emulation plus drive new actors and innovative ideas in a Re-Set of the EU.
EUMSSI develops technologies for identifying and aggregating data presented as unstructured information in sources of very different nature (video, audio, text and social context), including both online (e.g. YouTube) and traditional media (e.g. audiovisual repositories), and for dealing with information of very different degrees of granularity.

OpenScienceLink is an EU-funded project which will introduce and pilot a holistic approach to the publication, sharing, linking, review and evaluation of research results, based on the open access to scientific information. OpenScienceLink will pilot a range of novel services that could alleviate the lack of structured data journals and associated data models, the weaknesses of the review process, the poor linking of scientific information, as well as the limitations of current research evaluation metrics and indicators.
The main goal of Policy Compass is to develop a research prototype of an easy-to-use, highly visual and intuitive tool for social networks and eParticipation platforms, enabling citizens and public officials to easily create, apply, share, embed, annotate and discuss causal models, charts and graphs of historical data from trusted open data sources. The aim is to develop methods and tools that facilitate more factual, evidence-based, transparent and accountable policy evaluation and analysis.
REVEAL aims to advance the necessary technologies for making a higher level analysis of social media possible. The project is developing tools and services that aid in Social Media verification, particularly from the journalistic and enterprise perspective. The main objective is to discover higher level concepts hidden within social media information and thus enable users to reveal hidden ‘modalities’ such as reputation, influence or credibility of information.
UniteEurope is an EU-FP7 project that aims at giving the main actors of integration – immigrants and members of the host societies – a voice by analysing public Social Media contents generated by citizens in order to support decision-making in urban and pan-European integration policies.

STEP is an EU funded project that aims to promote the societal and political participation of young people in decision making procedures on environmental issues. For this, STEP develops and pilot tests a cloud eParticipation SaaS platform, enhanced with web / social media mining, gamification, machine translation, and visualisation features to facilitate the better interaction between young people and policy makers.
SYMPHONY aims to design and develop an innovative tool for policy making based on an agent-based macroeconomic engine, and on the idea of collecting and exploiting citizens and stakeholders’ expectations.
