In a statement today, it said the programme is open to academicians or practitioners with interest and competencies to conduct independent applied research on topics of contemporary relevance to the Islamic capital market (ICM).

The SC added that SIR is part of its ongoing thought-leadership and capacity-building efforts to further the global development of the ICM.
