iCUBE 5th Scientific Committee Meeting

iCUBE 5th Scientific Committee Meeting

Under the International Consortium of Universities for the Study of Biodiversity and the Environment (iCUBE), Universiti Brunei Darussalam recently organised the 5th iCUBE Scientific Committee Meeting virtually on November 25, 2020 via Zoom platform.

The online meeting brought together researchers from Korea University, Monash Univesity, National University of Singapore and Universiti Brunei Darussalam. The meeting was chaired by Dr Joyce Teo Siew Yean, Assistant Vice Chancellor and Vice President (Global Affairs), and co-chaired by Dr Hussein Taha, Head of iCUBE Secretariat.

The meeting sought to discuss on future iCUBE activities. Several proposed activities were discussed, which include the proposal for iCUBE webinar series and iCUBE Global Classroom. The iCUBE members are also in support to align iCUBE research activities with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which was previously suggested in the Scientific Committee Workshop organised in 2019. This means that iCUBE will focus on three areas i.e. biodiversity, environment and sustainability. The members were also briefed on UBD mobility programmes by Dr Sabrina Daud, Director of Global Relations.
