Welcome to ISITI
Institute of Social Informatics and Technological Innovations(ISITI), formerly known as the Centre of Excellence for Rural Informatics (CoERI) was established in April 2011 at the centre of University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) in Kota Samarahan. The Centre was established given the success of our flagship bridging-the-digital-divide pilot project, eBario. A key focus of ISITI is to bridge the technology-people’s gap; in particular, encompassing technological innovations for indigenous communities.Community and Institute- We should prioritize the needs of the community and the Institute above all else, as our main purpose for being a part of ISITI is to serve the community.Trust- As a relationship based on trust is the key to our success and sustainability, we must continue to maintain our close ties with the community and build our existing networks. Quality- The quality of our work reflects on the image of the Institute therefore we should always aim for the highest levels of excellence in all that we do.
The Institute of Social Informatics and Technological Innovations (ISITI) successfully kick-started the sixth eBorneo Knowledge Fair 2017 (eBKF6 2017) on 25 October 2017. The knowledge fair this year marks yet another milestone for ISITI as this not only is this the second time that ISITI is organising the knowledge fair in Ba’Kelalan, the Heart of Borneo, but this year marks the first time that the knowledge fair has introduced the Borneo Drive-Thru workshop to the participants.
The Borneo Drive-Thru workshop, which started in Lawas on 24 October 2017 before making its way to Long Semadoh before ending the journey in Ba’Kalalan, allowed participants to experience the terrain of the highlands as well as the gave them an insight to the lives of the highland communities in Sarawak.Read More
