Compliance with federal research security regulations – particularly those related to improper foreign research influence – have been a major source of frustration and risk for universities and their research faculty over the last several years. Federal investigations, penalties, and even criminal prosecutions have been all too common, bringing unwanted attention and reputational damage – as well as painful losses in funding and potential partnerships.

Yet these regulations remain critical to national security, and in ensuring the integrity of university research.

That’s why the recent release of the NSPM-33 Guidance to Federal Funding Agencies is so important, and why your university’s understanding of new and pending changes must be a top priority. These rules offer some good news for compliance and research professionals, bringing more clarity to the process and its reporting requirements and simplifying how researchers disclose information to the federal government.

But make no mistake, compliance will remain tricky, and will require a clear and full understanding among researchers as well as compliance professionals to ensure standards are adhered to. This webinar will focus on the specifics of the NSPM-33 Guidance to Federal Funding Agencies, providing clear and effective rules for ensuring research security and defining researcher responsibilities.

You won’t want to miss this critically important compliance update:
