Export Control & Foreign Influence Training Sessions

The Office of the Vice President for Research is hosting two informative virtual training sessions covering US export control regulations and Federal foreign influence concerns. Attendees will be provided with a practical orientation on export control and foreign influence issues in the context of research and related service activities. All Principal Investigators, Research Administrators, Postdoctoral Scholars, and Student Researchers are encouraged to attend one of the training sessions. Don Fischer, Principal of Fischer & Associates, advises universities and research institutions about these topics and will be the presenter at each session.

Export Control: Federal law requires that the University of Utah actively manage the export of any sensitive equipment, software, and technology in accordance with national security interests and foreign policy objectives. “Export” includes disclosure to foreign nationals studying and working on the University campus. It is imperative that PI’s and anyone who works with PI’s understand these regulations and assist the University in fulfilling its compliance obligations. All scientific research is affected by these laws, including international collaborations. This affects fundamental research as well as sponsor-restricted programs.       

Foreign Influence: While maintaining the University’s commitment to supporting an open research culture, researchers must also be mindful of protecting scientific and technological innovation from being stolen or exploited by foreign sources. This training will provide practical information to help you take protective actions to mitigate research integrity risks without compromising the values that distinguish the U.S. research enterprise.
