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.
