The crackdown on foreign influence in federally funded research is not going away – in fact, it just keeps getting more problematic for universities. In just the past few months, headlines have been filled with jarring stories about high-profile faculty arrests and more than a dozen major research institutions under investigation. Government agency reports are indicating a widespread lack of compliance with rules and regulations regarding reporting and internal monitoring efforts, and the feds say there’s much more to come.

Regardless of past miscues, it is becoming clear that the current state of a university’s compliance efforts and internal controls on foreign researchers will be considered in any future investigations and resulting penalties, so it’s time to make sure your house in order.

That’s why Tech Transfer Central has teamed up with UT-Austin’s Export Control Officer and Export Compliance Counsel David Ivey for this critically important webinar:

Navigating Foreign Relationships and Reporting Requirements in University Research

When it comes down to it, good compliance practices in tracking and reporting foreign research ties comes down to the people doing that research: Who is doing the work and with whom, where are they travelling to and from, what is the nature of their research, what gifts or funding do they receive, what IP or other data do they have access to, how can their access be controlled and accounted for, and what systems are used to report and track all this information.

You’ll get a solid plan of action for both policy and real-world practice from a compliance veteran. Here’s a quick look at the agenda:

  • Overview of applicable U.S. laws and regulations
  • Best practice advice for vetting foreign (non-U.S.) colleagues and institutions
  • How foreign research collaborations may create contractual compliance concerns for U.S. institutions
  • How to protect intellectual property from espionage efforts and bad actors
  • Understand the Federal Law Enforcement Guidance related to travel and technology
  • Spotting red flags and how to escalate the issue if you receive pushback from faculty/staff
