On Tuesday 22 February 2011, I returned back to Islamic Science University Malaysia (USIM), but this time with a total of 33 ISDEV members consisting of lecturers, Post-Doctoral Fellows and graduate students, not alone anymore.

As opposed to the establishment of my individual link during my tenureship at USIM on November-December last year, the aim this time is to build up institutional networking, between ISDEV and the Faculty of Economics and Muamalat (FEM) and the Islamic Finance and Management Institute (IFWMI) of the University. We were received by the Dean of the FEM Dr Asmaddy Haris and the Director of IFWMI Dr Zurina Shafii as well as by their staff and graduate students.
At the half-day occasion, two ISDEV PhD students presented a paper each. Mohd Shukri Hanapi talked on Graduate Researches at ISDEV while Warjio talked on Graduate Supervision at ISDEV. Subsequently, two IFWMI PhD students, Supiah Salleh talked on her research on Shari`ah Audit and Wan Khadijah Wan Mohd Nasir on Halal Traceability of the Halal Products respectively. The occasion ended with a conclusive presentation by AssociateProfessor Dr Kalsum Ahmad on Instrumention in Research Methodology.
Alhamdulillah, ISDEV is adding another institutional partner to its list of networking. Plan for research cooperation between academic staffs of IFWMI/FEM and ISDEV is in the pipeline.
