RCR Monthly Series: Undue Foreign Influence

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.

A panel of GW leaders from the Office of Research Integrity and the Office of Sponsored Projects will discuss how GW and other universities are responding to this issue and developments that may impact the GW research community.
