The MSRT, as one of the key players in science and technology in Iran, has engaged in international cooperation as one of the most important features of its subordinate institutions. One of the projects that has been implemented since 2016 with the aim of organizing international cooperation. According to it, some educational centers have been designated as "references for international cooperation" . The present study, while reviewing the performance, was conducted with the aim of providing a model for improving the current situation in the field of international scientific cooperation of the MSRT. Globalization, the international network system, and structure-agent theory are the three vertices of the triangle on which the paper's theoretical foundations are based. The research method is a combination of documentary study methods, comparative study, case study, interview and panel of experts. Based on the challenges identified in the four policy areas, intra-ministerial, extra-ministerial and operational, three strategies based on "maintaining the status quo and improving it", "changing the status quo and eliminating national authorities" and "returning to the status quo ante" are designed and exposed. Experts evaluated and consulted. The result is that maintaining and improving the status quo has been identified as the final solution and a set of policy solutions has been proposed to improve it. These solutions are presented at two levels: solutions at the level of policy-making and governance of national authorities, and solutions at the level of operations of national authorities. Below each level is a set of policy strategies.
