Description: Academic institutions are committed to maintaining openness and inclusivity in research, whether the collaboration is across campus, the region, or the globe. Institutions must uphold their missions while navigating a changing regulatory landscape and foster due diligence in international activities to mitigate risks and promote principled collaborations. This workshop will provide the latest information on NSPM-33 and relevant CHIPS Act research security requirements. It will offer attendees the opportunity to engage with each other on strategies for preparing for and implementing a research security program. University-wide awareness and engagement are critical for developing an effective program. Workshop leads will discuss how they have garnered institutional support for creating or updating university policy and processes in preparation for meeting NSPM-33 standards and elicit successful strategies from participants. Lastly, panelists and attendees will work in small groups and report out key strategic developments, investments, and resources that their respective universities have made.
