BO-ECLI (Building On ECLI) is a project financed by the European Commission under the eJustice programme.
Objectives of the BO-ECLI project are:
Further implementation of ECLI code and metadata in national case law repositories of eight Member States and connection of these repositories to the ESE-EEJP.
Analysis of existing solutions for computer based extraction of legal links (reference parsing), and development of a common infrastructure and open source software toolkit.
Assessment of current ECLI standard in relation to other semantic web standards, and development of ECLI 2.0.
Analysis of European and national legal and policy frameworks on (various aspects of) case law publication (selection criteria, data protection, open data) and drafting policy guidelines at European level.
Promotional acitivities (conference, website, folder, video) aimed at an increased use of the ECLI standard, both as a technical means for interoperability, and as a way of citing case law in judicial decisions, scholarly writings, and so on.
