Oregon State University encourages international collaborations. With heightened sensitivity on these issues nationally, the OSU Research Office reminds faculty, staff and graduate students to be transparent regarding their involvement in all international collaborations, and to remain abreast of their obligations to report on international research and scholarly activities.

We provide the following information to ensure Oregon State faculty, staff and students are aware of reporting requirements for international research and collaboration and the resources available to comply with them. Please refer to this information each time you embark on an international endeavor, as Federal guidance can change on short notice. OSU already has policies and procedures in place for those engaged in international research to comply with export control regulations, and reporting of foreign research support, foreign collaboration, and personal financial interests associated with foreign and domestic entities. With heightened sensitivity on these issues nationally, the OSU Research Office reminds faculty, staff and graduate students of their obligations to report on international research and scholarly activities.
