Event Information

Federal agencies and policymakers have expressed concern that foreign entities may be using the academic research enterprise in an attempt to compromise the United States’ economic competitiveness and national security. The research community has undergone heightened awareness and increased activity to ensure the security of research, protect against intellectual property theft and academic espionage, and prevent actions or activities by foreign governments and/or other entities that seek to exert undue foreign influence.

Please join the Office of the Vice President for Research, Offices of Sponsored Programs and Research Integrity for:

  • Updates to the national picture on undue foreign influence; and
  • Requirements from federal agencies related to proposal preparation and award management, financial conflicts of interest, and export controls.
