International Challenges for University Research: Foreign Economic Espionage & Trade Secret Exfiltration, and Immigration

University Research and Technology Transfer Webinar Series

With many summer professional development conferences cancelled, Quarles & Brady is pleased to provide a series of complimentary webinars (with CLE) focused on University Research and Tech Transfer topics.


Research institutions, universities, and private businesses work in close collaboration with one another, sharing confidential business information, processes, and trade secrets in order to create content. While this open innovation is a boon to creativity it is also a vulnerable entry point for bad actors. This webinar examined the rising trend of economic espionage, trade secret, and export controls matters and discussed measures various institutions may take to defend against them.

These same organizations work in an increasingly international environment where people born outside the US come here to work and collaborate. Immigration is a highly regulated field for employers that changes week-by-week. We addressed the latest solutions to overcoming immigration hurdles to keep the best and the brightest employed in the US.
