Preventing Illicit Sensitive Technology Transfer in Research Settings


25 Jan Series preventing sensitive technology transfer

The Centre for Science and Security Studies at King's College London is hosting a new online series on preventing technology transfer in research settings in cooperation with partner organisations, the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation at the Middlebury Institute and CRDF Global.

The first iteration of this online series will be held in January 2021 and be open to participants from the Asia-Pacific region.

  • The series is aimed at research and compliance staff from universities and research institutes as well as government officials working in the field of trade and technology controls.
  • Participants will learn about sensitive technologies, their military applications, the behaviour of threat actors and proliferators seeking to steal sensitive technologies from universities and research institutions, and the compliance obligations and tools for universities to counter these threats.
  • It will enable participants to work towards establishing effective compliance procedures at their home institutions, thereby minimising the risk that the diversion of technologies into adverse military programmes poses to their university or research institute and to its staff.

Over the course of four weeks, participants will enjoy a series of four self-taught e-learning modules, coupled with four webinars and drop-in mentoring sessions with international experts from academia and government. The average workload of the course is approximately five hours per week over four weeks.


The registration for participants will be undertaken by our partner CRDF Global. For further information, for eligibility and to register, please refer to the CRDF Global event webpage (see above).
