The KVAB works with the other Academies in Belgium and has bilateral agreements with 17 foreign Academies. Via RASAB (Royal Academies for Science and the Arts of Belgium), a partnership between the KVAB and the Académie Royale de Belgique, the KVAB is a member of the relevant networks of Academies and scientific unions at both European and global level. The staff of RASAB also take care of the administration of the national committees.
The members of the Academy can join both temporary and permanent working groups, committees and scientific committees. Various scientific committees have a certain degree of independence within the Academy and can evolve into significant inter-university research collaborations.
