Introduction

Recent months have seen increased scrutiny on the Export Controls and Santions exposure of applied scientific research. More and more, institutions and facilities in Pharmaceuticals (e.g. API, pathogens), Life Sciences and Fundamental Research need to understand their responsibilities, while traditionally well-controlled industries such as Aerospace and Defence and Space are improving their capabilities to deal with dual-use items.

The export of controlled technology and technical data (such as models, formulae, engineering design, training and instructions) is regulated for reasons of national security, foreign policy, prevention of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and for competitive trade reasons. Export Control laws require universities and companies to seek and receive authorization from various governments before releasing to foreign persons or companies (nationals) sponsored research or other activities involving controlled technologies or certain countries. Even institutions with an export control exemption are required to document an analysis of control issues.

But amid this background of scrutiny and control, there are opportunities to exploit for those who are capable of meeting the requirements. This seminar will enable participants to improve their procedures, seek and acquire the appropriate licenses and authorisations and confidently continue to work with controlled technologies and/or restricted countries.

World-renowned experts public and private sector institutions will relate the opportunities these changes provide, backed up by a full and thorough understanding of the risks and responsibilities affecting these sectors.
