Lynx meets in Vienna to discuss the exploitation of the project results

 

On October 29th, 8 partners of Lynx met in Vienna to discuss on the exploitation of the project results and the life of the Lynx innovations after the project has formally finished.

Lynx is building a great platform, has defined a number of unique services and is being used to built vertical solutions. With these ingredients, we only need to reach our users and make their compliance easier!

Lynx Project presented at ReMeP 2019

Research Meets Practice (ReMeP) 2019, conference of Legal Informatics, was celebrated in Vienna during the 23rd - 24th September. 

Christian Sageder, partner from openlaws, attended the conference and presented Lynx to researchers that present their projects and businesses looking for solutions. The conference programme included new approaches on reasoning on legal texts, contracts indexing and legal decision making, amongst other topics. This was a great opportunity to present Lynx solutions to legal companies that could benefit from its technology. 

5th Lynx Plenary Meeting in Venice

 

Alpenite was in charge of the organisation of the 5th Plenary Meeting of Lynx in their offices in Venice. About twenty members of Lynx Consortium were meeting from the 30th September to the 2nd of October to discuss the next steps in the remaining year of Lynx.

Great efforts were focused on pilots demos and exploitation strategies. Partners also agreed on celebrating a 2nd Coding Sprint at UPM facilities in Cercedilla, since previous edition was a great success. Dates for the next plenary meeting were also fixed and some decisions on the final Lynx event were made.

The celebration of the 32nd edition of JURIX was also one of the main topics discussed, since it will offer an Industrial Track to gather researchers and companies that will surely boost the impact of Lynx Project within the Legal Tech community.

Lynx at Semantics 2019

Georg Rehm presented some Lynx results at Semantics 2019: Fine-grained Named Entity Recognition in German Legal Documents. Lynx is currently ingesting national legislation from Germany and Austria in the Legal Knowledge Graph, where NER algorithms are being used to identify persons, companies, organisations, temporal information and other named entities --enhancing thus the search of legal documents.
