The University actively encourages and facilitates collaborations between its researchers within the University and with researchers external to it. External researchers seeking to initiate collaboration should partner with a faculty researcher within the University. This is required for international researchers seeking to conduct their research activities within Bhutan through the University. Collaboration is governed by specific administrative polices for collaborations within and outside the University. Moreover, individual Colleges, research centers, and the University as a whole, may develop collaborations with other institutions, in line with its research areas and objectives.
