Research output: Chapter in BookChapterResearchpeer-review


European small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) and large corporations face multiple constraints to engage in trade abroad and to localize their products and services to other countries, mainly as a consequence of legal and language barriers. This is one of the main consequences of the multiple differences across Europe, which is fragmented into legal silos and into more than 20 linguistic islands. LYNX H2020 project will provide more effective ways of accessing huge amount of digital regulatory compliance documents, including legislation, case law, standards, industry norms and best practices. In particular, the LYNX project envisages an ecosystem of smart cloud services to better manage compliance documents, based on a Legal Knowledge Graph (LKG) which integrates and links heterogeneous compliance data sources. This ecosystem will enable smart search, smart assistance and smart referencing of case law, as well as Artificial Intelligence technologies and machine translation of regulatory compliance documents. An initial step in the development of the LYNX platform is the collection of business requirements from end-users and relevant stakeholders. Therefore, this work introduces the techniques used for the gathering of business requirements from endusers and stakeholders and a list of prioritized business requirements collected through qualitative and quantitative techniques
