The ability of the U.S. and China to collaborate in private and public scientific research increasingly looms as a challenge that can affect all of humanity in our efforts to address pandemics, global climate change, and other shared human and planetary challenges. To some observers, however, research has become impossible due to concerns over national security, human rights, and theft.

We begin this program by first examining the risks of U.S.-China technology collaboration, we will look at the impact of the FBI’s China Initiative, and how China’s own practices and policies may put such collaboration at risk, and the risks posed by collaboration in fundamental research and in sector-specific areas. We then will look at steps that can be taken to reduce risks of collaboration. The discussions will look at all aspects of research: government to government, corporate, non-profit and academic.
