The Insti­tute of Social Infor­mat­ics and Tech­no­log­i­cal Inno­va­tions (ISITI-​CRI) began its oper­a­tion in April 2011, and was upgraded from the Cen­tre of Excel­lence for Rural Infor­mat­ics (CoERI); 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.


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.
We should respect those we are work­ing with, irre­spec­tive of who they are, what posi­tions they hold.

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.


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.
