Innovation Market Experts and High-Tech Office Ukraine have begun work on a number of important digital projects. As known, within the framework of the public document "Digital Agenda for Ukraine 2020", which was developed by specialists of High-Tech Office Ukraine and a group of experts of companies - the world and domestic leaders of the high-tech market with the assistance and support of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, the Committee On information and communication of Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Administration of the President of Ukraine, a number of important areas of digital transformation were identified. Among them:
- Overcoming digital inequality
In the modern world, broadband internet technology has become not just a means of data transmission, but also a significant factor in ensuring favorable conditions for the development of public administration, economics, science, education and culture. Our common goal is to ensure that all citizens of Ukraine, without any restrictions of a technical, organizational or geographic nature, can take advantage of the "digital" world.
To implement this ambitious project a project team has been formed at Hi Tech Office Ukraine. It’s main task is to develop and implement the "Broadband Internet Access" project based on of the existing state-owned fiber-optic infrastructure. The project is running together with leading and local communication service providers, some state-own companies, IT service providers and other companies.
Created a project team.
- Smart City, Urban Smart Infrastructure
With the aim of practical implementation and realization of projects for the digital transformation of economic and managerial infrastructure of Ukrainian cities, which are today one of the priority areas of activity of local communities of Ukraine, Hi Tech Office Ukraine together with a number of cities launched the DigitalCities-DigitalUkraine project. The Memorandums were signed between Hi Tech Office and some cities of Ukraine in order to establish the common approaches and possible unified solutions for Ukrainian cities for the effective and systematic implementation of Smart City projects and technologies.
Created a project team.
- Public safety and protection
Human life and its safety, law enforcement and public restraint are the priority tasks for modern Ukraine. The creation of 112 System in Ukraine is the only way to join the common digital space of public safety&security in the EU. System 112 will allow to expand access to emergency services to the all population of the country, increase the level of public safety inside the country, improve the efficiency of management of emergency services and reduce the negative consequences of emergencies. Recently, the specialists of Hi Tech Office Ukraine has been joined the working group working on the implementation of this system in Ukraine.
Created a project team.
- Digitalization of the social sphere
The digitalization of the social sphere should focus on improving the quality of social security infrastructure, the quality of social services, the organization of transparency and targeting of social assistance, as well as the reduction of the corresponding costs. There are 15 issuers of 357 different privileges in Ukraine at the moment. However, there is no information exchange between them. There is no clear control of the privileges provided by the state. To solve this problem Hi Tech Office Ukraine together with MasterSard and the State Innovation Finance and Credit Institution are working to create a "Unified Center for Non-Financial Services Processing". It’s activities will focus not only on the processing of social transactions, but also will enable the processing of transactions of many existing commercial bonus systems and loyalty systems, and create effective coalitions of loyalty.
- Electronic payments and payments
The development of non-cash payments, payment infrastructure and lower demand for cash is one of the important issues for reducing cash flow in the economy. That is why we are working on the project "Cashless economy" and in particular on the Draft Law of Ukraine "About the provision of payment services by the payment service provider (regarding institutional improvement of the financial market of Ukraine for the adoption of Ukrainian legislation to the legislation of the European Community) ". This Law will regulate the provision of payment services by a payment service provider in the financial market of Ukraine for conducting payment accounts, making payments, issuing, providing circulation and repayment of electronic money.
