The ISITI-CoERI projects are located within Malaysia with a very large and diverse indigenous remote population. The institute brings together more than 30 researchers from different Faculties and Centres in UNIMAS; from the social sciences, to ICTs and engineering. The whole procedure of implementing the projects in remote communities is identical to where the deployment of technologies takes very short time in comparison to engagement and relationship building with communities. Within this ambit, the following are the research thrusts in ISITI-CoERI in 2013:
- Bridging the Digital Divide
- Socio Economic Development
- Green Technology
- Indigenous Knowledge and Cultural Preservation
- Telecentre’s Sustainability
Research in ISITI-CoERI is conducted at the institute and research group levels. All our researchers not only conduct research, but also go down to the ground to study, design and implement programmes at the community level.
