Description Collaboration and crowdsourcing are the realities of today's public Internet. The so-called "Web2.0" provides the ability to leverage the vast amount of user-generated content for supporting governments in their political decisions. This ability requires new ICT tools that will be able to analyze and classify the opinions expressed on the informal Web, or stimulate responses, as well as to put data from sources as diverse as blogs, online opinion polls and government reports to an effective use. NOMAD aims to introduce new dimensions into the experience of policy making by providing decision-makers with fully automated solutions for content search, selection acquisition, categorization and visualization that work in a collaborative form in the policy-making arena.
