COMSTECH has established Thirteen Inter-Islamic Networks:

The science and technology plan of action prepared by COMSTECH proposed the progressive establishment of high technology institutions in the OIC region in selected areas of science and technology. Due to constant neglect of science and technology in the Muslim world, no single member state is able to muster all the necessary human and material resources and provide full facilities for research and development. Therefore it was argued that a collective approach would be beneficial. This led to the concept of networking of resources and establishment of Centres of Excellence in key disciplines to enable the COMSTECH member states to develop a respectable level of research.
