The crackdown on foreign influence in federally funded research is not going away – in fact, it just keeps getting more problematic for universities…

Risk Assessment and Reporting Requirements for Foreign Research Relationships

The ongoing investigations and enforcement actions related to inappropriate foreign influence on federally funded research are expected to continue indefinitely, and the efforts by China and others to infiltrate American research universities and gain access to critical intellectual property are only getting more sophisticated and widespread.

More than 50 universities have now been asked to investigate specific threats, several labs have fired researchers over failure to disclose foreign relationships and funding, and several criminal prosecutions have also made headlines and headaches for the universities involved.

It’s a problem that isn’t going away. That’s why Tech Transfer Central has created this distance learning collection dedicated to improving your assessment strategies and compliance with reporting requirements. You’ll receive these two recorded programs in our digital package format — on-demand video and transcript — so you can view and share them with your entire staff on or off campus at your convenience.

Here are some brief details of each program in the collection – click on the titles for more in-depth program and faculty information:

1. Navigating Foreign Relationships and Reporting Requirements in University Research

Presented by: David Ivey, UT-Austin’s Export Control Officer and Export Compliance Counsel

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.

2. Mitigating Risks Associated with Foreign Research Collaborators

Presented by: Wendy Epley, Principal, Wendy Epley Consulting

You’ll learn how to comply with the added security measures being required by federal agencies, identify red flags, and spot subtle clues of inappropriate foreign influence so your university can protect its research and its reputation. You’ll gain dozens of best practices and strategies for mitigating risks associated with foreign research collaborators.
