Restricted Research and Export Control Consequences

When research is restricted by the sponsor, it is no longer considered protected by the fundamental research exception and becomes subject to export controls. As such, approval must be granted to any non-U.S. student wishing to work on the research. The process of receiving a license is a long process and so this is important to consider when determining whether to accept restrictions on your research.


For questions regarding research and its export control implications please contact the Office of Sponsored Programs:
