NQCG develops sophisticated software incorporating logical techniques from artificial intelligence and law to help legal services organisations to understand the complexity of intellectual property (IP) and relevant regulation and legislation relating to environment and human safety.

NQCG legal informatics and software tools can help your organisation to manoeuvre through the increasingly complex global haystack of IP rights and patents in future and emerging converging (nano-bio-info-cogno) technologies, and assist in standards and regulatory compliance. IP is, besides regulatory aspects, the most crucial part of legal systems that need adaptations in the light of the specificities of nanotechnological research.

NQCG comprehensive nanotechnological ontological frameworks are fed into advanced search technologies that differs dramatically from existing legal research databases, built on state-of-the-art semantic technology and ontology tools. Using software to add structure to data of all cases, NQCG help lawyers and legal researchers to easily turn unstructured legal text into structured data, and provide lawyers with a smart interface to that data. Our tools can help legal practitioners to navigate with simple menus to find all relevant cases and filter to a precise subset based on factual, contextual and procedural details.

NQCG's primary research interest is the realization of quantum simulators capable of complex computations in the fields of nanoscience and continuum mechanics.


NQCG is developing an open semantic e-infrastructure system and international collaborative environment for open-source research, standardization and innovation in future and emerging convergent technologies and the integration of state-of-the-art techniques of ontology design.
