December 7, 2011
3:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m. (EST)
$145 NAFSA member; $185 nonmember

Registration Deadline: December 2, 2011

Export control carries legal implications for your institution. If you or others on your campus travel overseas, export items, collaborate with foreign scholars, or conduct export controlled research, you won't want to miss this opportunity to revisit what is and is not allowable under export control law.

In this webinar, you will learn about how fundamental research is defined under the law and how to determine what qualifies as fundamental research; ancillary issues pertaining to fundamental research; elements of a technology control plan; what requires licensing; and the policies and procedures you should have in place to address export controls. Join the presenters as they highlight legal implications and ways for universities to protect themselves.

Webinar Objectives:

* Build your institution's capacity to protect itself from export control violations.
* Determine what does and does not classify as fundamental research.
* Establish a process for handling export control issues.
