Integrated Information System

“Slovenia Your Cooperation Partner (SYCP)”

Your Companion in Discovering Slovenia

Prof.dr.Boris Cizelj, Director

Slovenian Business & Research Association, Brussels - SBRA

Part I

Development of the SYCP System

WHY SYCP? Visibility:Specific Problem of Slovenia

Broader function of SYCP: Supporting establishment of European Identity

  • In early nineties, except neighbours, Europeans at large knew little about Slovenia (limited and modest promotion, changing logos and symbols, no selection of distinguishing features);
  • Basic country attributes: small, advanced, most Westernized part of ex-Yugoslavia; Central European, Slavic - with strong Austrian and Italian influence, strategically positioned at multiple crossroads (language, religion, logistics);
  • In terms of business and RTD – tradition of European partnership;
  • In function of developed European links many data bases existed, but most of them rather general, or very specific, sectoral (e.g.: SICRIS).
Iniciative and genesis of the Project
  • The need to fill the gap felt first at Ministry for Science & Technology – NCP dr. Aleš Gnamuš (2000) – in view of participation in FP6
  • Evolution:
    • Good collaboration between MST and SBRA;
    • Gradual involvement of other stakeholders (Chamber of Commerce & Industry, STO, Chamber of SME & Craft;
    • Excellent collaboration with IZUM; later commissioned to company Triglif (Open Code – Weblegant CMS System).
Key Project Partnerships
  • General Coordination SBRA, chair Task Force, partly funding
  • dr. Aleš Gnamuš (MST) – Chief Editor
  • ARRS – liaison with Government, partly funding

Conditions for Success:
  • “National Project” leading to full collaboration of all relevant institutions and resources (human and financial) necessary for such a complex undertaking;
  • Secure motivation for the above partners through joint ownership of the System;
  • Coordinating and funding role to be undertaken by a well accepted institution/person with adequate experience and credibility;
  • Persuade owners of relevant portals and data bases to contribute their systems as a component of the Project;
  • Secure updating of the System with active collaboration of all partners;
  • Secure links to/from all relevant information systems and portals;
  • Organize best possible presentation and dissemination of the contents of the System – including promotional material, such as CDs / DVDs at home and abroad.
Critical factorsto make SYCP-type systems a key instrument of promotion of the country through modern presentation of its potential and capacities:
  • Permanent updating of information;
  • On-going development of the design, structure of contents, and technical features (search engines) of the System;
  • Successful promotion of the System in the country and abroad.
