InDoc Center

InDoc Center, as one of the departments of Regional Economic Development Agency for Šumadija and Pomoravlje, was formed in January 2006 within the project "Development of institutional capacity for implementation of Integrative plan of socio-economic development of Šumadija and Pomoravlje" that was funded by European Agency for Reconstruction. Main reason why InDoc was formed was to provide support for regional development process through forming a mechanism for collection, processing, systematization and analysis of data important for Šumadija and Pomoravlje region. Actually InDoc Centre, as a source of timely distribution of relevant information, was created with concern to the problems and disadvantages of regional development planning process that reflected in the following:  
  • There was no collective database of relevant socio-economic data on the territory of Šumadija and Pomoravlje,    
  • There were no systematic analyses on development capacities of Šumadija and Pomoravlje,    
  • Information flow among stakeholders of socio-economic development was slow and often untimely.    
Statistical data concerning the process of socio-economic development were often available only on national level, while local and regional levels were neglected. On the other hand, even though some data on local level were available, they were not collected altogether in one place, that is to say there was no institution that would take care of gathering and interpreting the data.  Apart from that, regional Agency itself needed a centralized place for information collection and distribution with the purpose of building the capacities of other departments.   

That is why InDoc Centre had the task to solve these problems in regional development planning process. Having accomplished these tasks, InDoc Centre did not only enable Regional Agency to build their capacities, but it did the same for other key beneficiaries of the regional development planning process in Šumadija and Pomoravlje.  

Main activities of InDoc centre are:  
  • Collection, processing, systematization and analysis of data,    
  • Dissemination and improvement of information dispersion,    
  • Preparation of analyses and reports significant for Šumadija and Pomoravlje region,    
  • Development and maintenance of information system of the regional Agency,    
  • Development and maintenance of REDASP’s web page,    
  • Database development,    
  • Realization of trainings concerning working in chosen computer programmes for employees in local self-governments,    
  • REDASP Publishing: Creating publications, newsletters, information leaflets and brochures for the needs of Regional Agency,    
In the upcoming period InDoc Center will focus on realization of activities that will continue to contribute to the increase of capacities of Regional Agency and their partners in conducting regional development planning process, which will specifically apply on:
  • Creating a web portal that will unify investment potentials of all local self-government capacities in Šumadija and Pomoravlje region, based on GIS software solutions,    
  • Development of online system for unifying activities that are the basis of the regional development process in Šumadija and Pomoravlje,    
  • Creating an online database on skills of all regional agencies in Serbia,    
  • Regular updates of existing information system of Regional Agency.
