A major role of the Israel Academy is to promote and coordinate scholarly contacts between Israel and the international community, partly on the basis of international agreements for scientific cooperation, and partly by representing Israel in international scientific organizations.
The Academy is the signatory to over thirty international agreements providing for reciprocal visits by Israeli and foreign scholars and joint scientific workshops. In addition, the Academy represents Israel in nearly all of the scientific unions of the International Council for Science (ICSU), and it is a founding member of ALLEA (All European Academies), the Association of Academies and Societies of Sciences in Asia (AASSA), the Global Network of Science Academies (IAP) and the Inter-Academy Council.

The establishment of Israeli academic centers in Egypt and China is among the major multi- and bi-national initiatives in which the Academy has played a leading role.
