e-G.E.MI (Electronic General Commercial Registry)

e GEMI

The need to digitally upgrade the Greek entrepreneurship, reduce red-tape and improve the quality of digital services to businesses lead to the transition of the General Commercial registry to the digital age. E-G.E.MI was officially launched last month by the Ministry of Digital Policy, Telecommunications and Media and the Ministry of Economy and Development.

The e-G.E.MI follows the example of similar international registries, such as the HOUSE OF COMPANIES (United Kingdom) and the PUBLIC REGISTER (U.S.A., Singapore). The electronic commercial registry from enterprises boosts transparency, secures transactions and accelerates processes and decision making.

The launching of the General Electronic Commercial Registry in Greece, in conjunction with the transformation of Chambers into “one-stop shops”, is a milestone in the accomplishment of the general goal of simplifying and streamlining business processes.

Some of the most significant financial and social benefits that are expected from the implementation of G.E. MI are the following:

  • flexible and fast monitoring of commercial enterprises;
  • quick issuance of documents (certificates), which from now on are standardized and downloadable from the database;
  • simpler administrative control of the data provided by limited liability companies regarding the fulfillment of their obligations in compliance with the applicable law;
  • easy fact-checking and exchange of information between services and interested parties;
  • easy extraction of statistical data
  • synergies with other public sector projects so that information can be shared and used by various public services to achieve economies of scale and provide better services to the citizen.

Video Assistant Referee: the digital reform of the Greek football

VAR

The Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) together with the Ministry of Culture and Sports and the Ministry of Digital Policy, Telecommunications and Media confirmed the launching of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in Super League football matches in the 2018/2019 season.

Through a modern and safe optic fiber network, the VAR is able to record football games from multiple cameras. Thus, enables the quick review of refereeing decisions and helps referees make evidence-based calls.

"Our aim is to contribute to the effort to restore Greek football's lost credibility. The VAR project moves in that direction" said the General Secretary for digital policy, Mr. Stelios Rallis, in a statement to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.

The completion of the project will contribute to EPO’s digital reform as well as to the creation of a audiovisual bank of football games to be used for teaching, research and information purposes. It will be hosted in the Data Center of the Greek Research and Technology Network.

The VAR aims, among other things, at:

  • enhancing football culture;
  • fighting football hooliganism;
  • harmonizing Greek practices with international digital standards;
  • creating new jobs.

Newspaper and magazine barcodes

The project offers a comprehensive system of monitoring the circulation of printed press (printing, distribution, sale and return). The funding of the project is guaranteed by the Public Investments Program 2018.

Newspaper and magazine barcodes will enhance transparency in the circulation of printed press; they will create a level playing field for the distribution of public advertising and reduce unfair competition and tax evasion practices.

Cyberkid: safe Internet for children

The Cyber Crime Division of the Hellenic police, established in 2004, investigates, detects and prosecutes crimes committed using the Internet.

The application Cyberkid for mobile devices has been developed to inform children and parents on the safe use of the Internet as well as on the greatest risks that kids face online. Cyberkid offers a protected online environment where children can play their favorite videogames. At the same time, it is directly connected with the Cyber Crime Division through the Cyber Alert line. The application runs on Android, iOs and Windows.
