    Ever wondered what export controls are? Have you seen a grant or contract term referencing EAR, ITAR or OFAC and didn’t know what that meant? We (2 export control professionals) will give you the fundamentals and the tools to recognize export control concerns in the grants life cycle. We’ll explain the basics behind the regulations and walk through red flags that further analysis by a knowledgeable export controls resource is likely warranted. Lastly, the webinar will describe a few hypothetical case studies that we’ll break down.
