The Internet and Communication Policy Centre is working on the monitoring of digital policies of the EU institutions. One of the mainactivities of the researchers of the Center is the collection of policy documents produced and/or cited by the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council of the European Union between 1995 and 2014. More than a thousand documents have been collected through the tracking-down of citations and references. The point of departure have been the 2014 policy documents concerning the Internet issued by the three European institutions. The monitoring and collection of documents is still running. The aim is to screen the policy production from 2014 to the present. The first goal of the archive is to reconstruct in detail the policy context within which the institutional players of the European Union move. The second stage of the work is in progress, and it consists of the documents’ classification and the visualization of the connections between the different items. The twofold aim is to identify homogeneous thematic clusters and to select the most referred-to documents within the overall set of the EU Internet Policies. Finally, the project envisages a further phase of document analysis by using applications for text mining and linguistic analysis in order to develop a glossary of European digital policies and to highlight the most important elements of the European digital network discourse.
