The University of Nebraska Export Control Office is hosting a briefing and roundtable discussion with the Office of Export Enforcement of the Bureau of Industry and Security, an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The event is Feb. 9, 2-4 p.m. at the Nebraska Union Regency Suite.
The presentation is open to anyone currently engaged in or interested in engaging in export-controlled research. Registration is required.
BIS will present on topics relevant to university-based research, including fundamental research, export-controlled and emerging technologies, foreign influence and previous enforcement cases. Participants will learn what an export is and what export control regulations are; learn about the university’s efforts to comply with export controls; and identify export controls relevant to the research community.
This event is part of BIS’ new Academic Outreach Initiative, which includes a partnership with the University of Nebraska. BIS is prioritizing outreach to the Lincoln campus because of its research in commercial, military and dual-use technologies. BIS’ goal is to help UNL safeguard all research from threatening foreign government influence and ensure the research environment is welcoming to all individuals and empowers them to work in a safe and inclusive manner with the highest ethical standards.
