Securing the ongoing success of international and domestic research collaborations

Society benefits when the best minds from around the world come together to collaboratively create new discoveries and novel solutions that address challenges we face locally, nationally, and globally. At the same time, international activities come with various risks, which have received heightened attention from federal research sponsors in recent years.

The purpose of this page is to provide the Iowa State Research community with guidance on:

  • International Activities and Collaborations: Memo and FAQ;
  • Key areas of National Security Presidential Memorandum (NSPM-33, which is intended to provide clear and effective rules for ensuring research security and researcher responsibilities); and
  • Undue Foreign Influence

Iowa State University of Science & Technology values international collaboration, research, and scholarship. The Office of Research Ethics is committed to supporting an open and transparent research environment that welcomes the continued participation of researchers from around the world while ensuring the research enterprise is compliant with all regulatory requirements.
