Trikala, has been announced as the first Digital City in Greece by the Greek Vice Minister of Economics, C. Folias recently, which will finish its first phase of development by the middle of 2006, with funding from the Greek Information Society Framework Program.

The Digital City ICT applications aim to improve everyday life by simplifying public transactions, reducing telecommunication costs and by delivering new services related to the local way of life. Those ICT applications also offer new methods to enable citizens to participate in policy-making, and help ensure local government and public authorities as guarantors of the local society’s proper operation.
