- Membership in the International Astronautics Federation (IAF)

Aerospace Research Institute has been a member of the International Astronautics Federation since 2001 and renews its membership every year in the federation. This federation holds International Astronomical Congress every year in one of the countries of the world. The Federation is the venue for the global gathering of global space experts which seeks to promote space activities through information and international cooperation, promotion of information exchange in the development of space activities, and enhancement of space use to improve the human living standards. 

-Fulfilling Research Course at the Computer Research Institute of Toulouse, France

The Center of International Cooperation and Studies (under the coverage of Ministry of Science, Research and Technology) is the principal of the Jundishapur Research Initiative Project. The program aims to promote advanced scientific and technical cooperation between Iran and French researchers.

The research institute made a contract in 2005 with the Computer Research Institute of Toulouse, France in the form of Jundishapur program to cooperate in the project of "Design and construction of virtual reality simulator for the treatment of phobic anxiety disorders of airline passengers". In 2007, a three-person team from Aerospace Research Institute was sent to Computer Research Center in Toulouse, France. After two months of stay, the team conducted research into how to create a virtual reality environment in general and the required conditions particularly for the treatment of phobic anxiety disorders of airline passengers. The results of the research which included the software of virtual reality and related methods were transferred to Iran.
