Estrella: New Open Standards-based Administrative Law System

From excited utterances:

Recognizing citizens' (including "corporate" citizens) need to know and understand the law, the Leibniz Center for Law will coordinate a new European project, Estrella (European project for Standardized Transparant Representations in order to Extend Legal Accessibility).

The aim of the Estrella project is to develop and validate an open standards-based platform allowing European Commission public administrations to develop and deploy comprehensive legal knowledge management solutions, without becoming dependent on proprietary products of particular vendors.

Under the leadership of Leibniz' computer science and law professor, Radboud G.F. Winkels, Estrella will bring together vendors, academics, consultants and legislators to develop standards and run pilot projects to test them out.
