Project title: Local Government ICT Toolkit for mayors of Serbian municipalities
The project had five main objectives:
- Gathering best practices in the region
The starting point and basis for the successful realization of the project was to understand and map current situation in the region. During the research emphasis was put on ICT implementation in local governments, trying to identify successful and failed projects, but also regular practices.
- Conducting analyses of successes and failures
We conducted in-depth analyses of gathered materials and international practices in the area of local e-governance. The aim of the study was to come up with the adjustable model and recommendations for successful implementation of ICT potential on local level taking into consideration different level of development in the regions.
- Dissemination of results
There is need for training and consultancy of local authorities in the selected regions. The manual itself serves as a reminder and summary of the training provided to partner municipalities, but also as a starting point for those who wish to launch potentially awarding ICT projects in their municipalities.
- Networking and partnerships
Local partners were actively involved at every stage of this project, starting with drafting research design and finishing with follow-up implementation of information systems.
- Accumulated knowledge
With this project we filled the gap in available applied research with conducting analyses of existing practices and projects in selected regions.
