As a world-leading institution whose mission is the creation, transmission and preservation of knowledge, Princeton University thrives by attracting talent from across the world, and by embracing the free exchange of knowledge and ideas. Princeton is committed to a culture of inclusion and respect towards all members of the scholarly community.
Since 2018, U.S. government officials, on both sides of the aisle, have expressed growing concern about security threats posed by inappropriate foreign influence in research. The most serious allegations include instances of academic espionage aimed at illegally acquiring intellectual property and non-disclosure of foreign funding that overlaps with federally-funded research.
The Office of Research and Project Administration, under the sponsorship of the Dean for Research and the Office of General Counsel, is pleased to offer this training aimed to promote a better understanding of inappropriate foreign influence in research among central administration staff supporting research. The session will include topics such as on why inappropriate foreign influence is relevant now, current federal agency guidance relating to foreign influence, and relevant roles and responsibilities in the University. Please note that these sessions will be recorded for future training purposes.
Registration is available through the Employee Learning Center, under the ORPA tab.
