Hellenic Electronic Center


The primary purpose of the Hellenic Electronic Center (HEC) is to unify electronically the information of hellenic content available on the internet and act as a resource that will diffuse the hellenic culture around the world. Some such information databases and services in electronic format already exist on the internet. What is required however is to: a) organize and make access easy to these services to everyone b) provide a physical storage place for which this information can be permanently stored and c) provide dedicated computers that will handle the requests for this information.

The aim of the HEC is to fulfill all of the above. This is a unique project for which a group of people have dedicated there time and effort to make a reality on a volunteer basis . The following links will explain more about the project and how you can help us in our effort.
