ISTIC was represented by Dato’ Dr. Samsudin Tugiman (ISTIC Director) and Dato’ Dr. Sharifah Maimunah Syed Zin. The former gave a short introduction on ISTIC and its programmes and proposed to SEAMEO secretariat for collaboration in promoting IBSE in SEAMEO countries (Thailand, Myanmar and Philippines). This is  in view of the fact that IBSE is lready in place in Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, and Brunei Darussalam but not in Thailand, Philippines and Myanmar and that ISTIC has already established partnerships with SEAMEO Regional Education Centre for Science and Mathematics   (RECSAM) and SEAMEO Regional Centre for Quality Improvement for Teachers and  Education Personel (QITEP) in Science.


During the networking session, ISTIC met up with SEAMEO BIOTROP (Regional  Centre for Tropical Biology in Indonesia), SEAMEO SEN (Regional Centre for Special Education, Malaysia), SEAMEO SEARCA (Regional Centre for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture, Philippines), SEAMEO QITEP in Mathematics and SEAMEO RECSAM (Regional Centre for Education in Science and Mathematics (RECSAM) which has expressed interest in participating in ISTIC’s programmes.
