INSTITUTE OF SOCIAL INFORMATICS AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS - ISITI

Research Projects

Registered Research Projects in ISITI

ISITI projects are carried out within Malaysia with a very large and diverse indigenous remote population. The institute brings together more than 30 researchers from different faculties and centers in UNIMAS, from the social sciences to ICTs and engineering. The approach taken in implementing the projects in remote areas requires much effort in community engagement and building relations, in addition to grappling with the challenges of deploying technologies in difficult remote terrains. Within this ambit, the following are the research thrusts in ISITI:

  • Bridging Digital Divide
  • Socio Economic Development
  • Green Technology
  • eLearning
  • eHealth
  • Indigenous Knowledge & Cultural Preservation
  • Telecentre's Sustainability

Research in ISITI is carried out according to the research groups. However, in many instances multi and inter-disciplinary work is applied. Researchers at ISITI also engage with the community they are working with.
