In order to further enhance international exchange and cooperation, broaden horizons and improve international influence, the team has now established good cooperative relationships with renowned foreign universities such as University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow, Lancaster University, University of Milan Bicocca, Italy, and University of Vienna, Austria.

At the moment, the team is carrying out in-depth cooperation in joint training of students, project application and scientific collaboration; meanwhile, with the platform of International Geoscience Programme (IGCP) led and participated by Prof. Hu Xiumin, the International Team on Cretaceous Research, and the China-UK Talent Fund of National Endowment Committee, we are strengthening the communication and cooperation with foreign colleagues.
