July 2019 - NIH & NSF Statements on Foreign Influence
NIH and NSF have released statements concerning foreign influence. The NIH notice is a reminder "about the need to report foreign activities through documentation of other support, foreign components, and financial conflict of interest to prevent scientific, budgetary, or commitment overlap." The NSF announcement both reminds readers of existing policies and outlines new steps for research protection, including:
- "proposing use of an electronic format for submission of biographical sketches,"
- "issuing a policy making it clear that NSF personnel and IPAs detailed to NSF cannot participate in foreign government talent recruitment programs,"
- and commissioning an independent scientific advisory group to conduct a study to "assess risks and recommend possible practices for NSF and its awardee organizations to achieve the best balance between openness and security of science."
