Portugal is investing EUR 26 M in AI technology aimed at transforming the Justice Department with funds coming from the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR).


Portugal’s Gov-tech strategy for digital transformation will provide innovative services developed by universities, research centres and startups in order to have a more efficient Justice system. The total amount of PRR funds to be invested by the Justice Department will reach EUR 266.9 million, out of which 15% will be used for simplifying e-services for citizens and companies.


With the motto “Together to Transform the Justice Department”, Portugal’s strategy is to integrate innovative tech projects using AI. The tech projects that are already operational include the online application for citizenship that will authenticate documents automatically, but it is reserved for representatives in the first phase. A database of trade and company names is already operational using AI to automatically create possible names for companies.


Ongoing projects include the anonymization of data that will make it possible for rulings to be published, thus increasing transparency and data availability through AI.


Moreover, an Access Guide that uses machine-learning and that is similar to ChatGPT will be launched in March. It will provide information to citizens about the procedure to be followed for each situation. The first phase will provide information about wedding and divorce procedures, while in the future it will provide information about all other legal procedures.
