With the overall support of BISU and her own research expertise in international and intercultural communication, the director of CDS, Professor Zhang Xihua, initiated cooperation with University of Copenhagen (UCPH), Denmark since 2006. In 2012, a friendly, cooperative partnership was established between UCPH and BISU, ever since then, the research cooperation and students exchange have been steadily in progress.

Under the joint efforts of Chinese and Danish scholars, CDS has carried out a large number of basic and comparative studies, such as the research of anti-corruption in governance, comparative education research, cultural heritage and cultural communication research, and international talent cultivation.
