The U.S. export controls regulations affect all parts of a university or company. Operational processes from those rooted in sponsored research, technology transfer, materials transfer, shipping, recruiting, travel, and more have an element that requires some aspect of screening or evaluation against the relevant government regulations. Pulling together the key stakeholders is not easy, but it’s an essential aspect of driving comprehensive compliance across an organization. In this webinar, we’ll talk about how the various areas across a university are affected and solutions for gathering support to help drive compliance. We’ll cover the following topics and more:

  • Export control screening steps
  • Role of Export Control Committees or Task Forces
  • How to spread export controls awareness
  • What universities can learn from companies
  • Building relationships and bridging gaps with collaborators
  • Influencing across departments and functions

Who Should Attend:

  • Export compliance leaders, export control leaders, research compliance administrators, sponsored program administrators at universities, or research compliance leaders at non-profit research institutions
  • Anyone with direct or indirect responsibility in driving export controls compliance or export compliance in their role
