A photograph session with ISDEV-UUM Researchers

On 12 March 2015, ISDEV delegates led by ISDEV Director Professor Muhammad Syukri Salleh went to Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) Sintok with other ISDEV lecturers, Academic Staff Training Scheme (ASTS) and RISDEV (ISDEV Postgraduate by Research) students to attend a meeting with UUM Researchers on common areas of interest for proposed research collaborations endeavours.

The researchers focused during the meeting

With the initiative of ISDEV Associate Fellow Dr. Helmi Hidthiir (UUM), the delegates successfully met up and discussed potential research collaborations. The session was divided into two parts. For the first part, researchers were grouped according to members' interest and expertise. Members were divided into five groups who were all given the time and opportunity to detail the area of each group's research and focus. 

The second part saw the representative from each group presenting a brief research proposal to Professor Syukri who then gave invaluable feedback and comments in which aspects the proposal of the research can be further improved upon.The result from the meeting saw all the five research groups unanimously agreeing to build up the following proposed research topics:-

(1) Pembinaan Instrument Perbelanjaan Isirumah Muslim (Constructing the Muslim Household Expenditure Instrument);
(2) Teknik Motivasi Islam - Penilaian Semula Teknik QSI (Qur'an, Sunnah dan Ilmu) di Negeri Kedah dan Pulau Pinang (Islamic Motivation Technique - A Reassessment of the QSI (Qur'an, Sunnah and Knowledge) Technique in Kedah and Pulau Pinang);
(3) Islamic Code of Ethics for Salespeople;
(4) An Islamic Analysis of the Philosophical Underpinnings of Accounting; and 
(5) Kelestarian Harta Faraid - Pembinaan Garispanduan Berasaskan Syirkah (Sustainability of Faraidh Assets - Developing the Guidelines Based on Syirkah").

By the establishment of these five research groups, researchers from both institutions hope these proposed researches will be able to garner the required research grants from relevant parties. Once approved it is ardently hoped and prayed that the research collaborations will be of great benefit not only to the research members and the two institutions but also the ummah and of course to Islam as well.
