On convocation, the Laboratory has adapted the basic concept of open door policy to accept and support worthy research projects with originality from external applicants, regardless of national and international sources, to be performed with the benefit of the excellent facilities and infrastructure provided by her. The Laboratory also established an affirmative policy of strong cooperation in complementary, interdisciplinary, and international modes. The Laboratory provides her facilities and hospitality to about 50 visiting scientists annually through various mechanisms. The Laboratory has taken extensive collaborations and exchangeswith many universities and institutions. In addition, over the years, mutually profitable joint research projects have been developed with many commercial concerns in order to assist in solving specific technical items.
