NPI has scientific contacts with the researchers and educationists in the related field across the globe in more than 50 countries through POLYCHAR World Forum on Advanced Materials, the IUPAC and the alumni of the institute. Dozens of young materials scientists and students have enjoyed research stays in foreign laboratories through the recommendation of the NPI.
Youth involvement is the core of the NPI. In patronage of senior members, young NPI members and affiliates have established following landmarks in Nepal which is continuing to grow.
