On Tuesday 25 October a workshop on the implementation of e-call in Greece took place in Athens. The event was organised within the framework of the Greek National Research Project eKLISI whose primary objective is the implementation and demonstration of a national pilot application of eCall. The eKLISI project coordinated by ERTICO Partner ICCS (Institute of Communication and Computing Systems) with the participation of COSMOTE S.A. (Mobile Operator) and Space Hellas (SW and electronics SME) is expected to create the  groundwork necessary for the implementation of the eCall service in Greece something that will be obligatory for all EU member-states from 2014 as set out by the European project HeERO.

The ongoing actions of the Greek Government for the implementation of the eCall service were presented at the workshop as well as an overview of the related European research project HeERO which seeks to prepare nine European member-states (including Greece) for the implementation of the eCall service. The pilot implementation of the eCall service in the Czech Republic (also a member of the HeERO project) was also presented as a case study. 

The workshop was attended by several national stakeholders from the public and private sectors who took part in a constructive discussion on the implementation of the eCall service in Greece the potential problems and the most efficient solutions.
