In 1992 the Institute established international contacts both in the field of research and in the field of science intensive production sales.
In R&D area the Institute carries out works under the orders of a number of foreign organizations, such as Los Alamos National Laboratory (NL), Sandia NL; Lawrence Livermore NL, Brookhaven NL, Oak Ridge NL of the US Department of Energy, the Joint Research Center of the European Union; the Institute for Transuranium Elements (Karlsruhe, Germany), the Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen (Ispra, Italy), and others.

- nuclear material control and accounting;
- complex engineering systems safety;
- materials behavior under large heat and shock loads;
- nuclear and radioactive material non-proliferation.
The Institute’s specialists are frequent participants in international conferences and symposia where their reports provoke great interest of scientists and specialists.
