The USTHB promotes the opening of the research laboratories to the national and international scientific cooperation in order to strengthen the international dimension of research, and lent her support to all scientific programs of cooperation involving the USTHB laboratories and Algerian and foreign laboratories.
The USTHB has always been part of a dynamic international scientific cooperation intense. It should be noted that since its foundation, the university has concluded cooperation agreements between universities in particular with French universities (Grenoble,Montpellier,Rennes).
The USTHB now has inter-university agreement (France, Spain, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, UK) African (Cameroon, South Africa, Tunisia, Libya) North America (USA) and Asian (Korea southern, Japan) .
The USTHB is a member of various international networks of academic cooperation. Examples include the Association of African Universities, Association of Arab Universities, the University agency of the Franco phony (AUF) , The UICEE (UNESCO International Centre For Engineering Education), UNESCO Centre for Development of Science engineering and technology education.
Since the signature of the agreement of scientific and technical cultural cooperation in 1986 between France and Algeria and the creation of the mixed committee of evaluation and prospective (CMEP)- TASSILI**
The USTHB was able to develop the agreements of cooperation in the research with laboratories of French universities and the (CNRS)***
as well as the INSERM. It is to indicate that around thirty research projects of cooperation within the framework of the CMEP are annually functional since the signing of the agreement.
The organization of the scientific events (Congresses, Colloquiums, and Seminars) is also a major point of the activities of The USTHB to develop its external relation.
Half a dozen international and regional scientific events are organized annually.
Another focal point of the external relations of The USTHB is moving its teachers and researchers in scientific events occurring abroad to present their research.
As a benchmark 783 Communications were presented in 2008 with 510 Communications in Europe 190 in Africa 50 in Asia and 33 in America .
These works are then typically published in international specialized review.
