Export Controls for the Research Administrator  

November 19, 2024
2:00 – 3:30 pm ET * Webinar
3:35 – 4:30 pm ET * After the Show * Talk with the Faculty Directly!

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.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the three major export control regulatory schemes and the three major exclusions that apply to academic institutions.
  2. Gain an understanding of the Fundamental Research Exclusion and how that benefits universities.
  3. Gain familiarity with export controlled research.
  4. Identify higher risk situations that may require escalation to their institutions’ export control office.

Format of webinar: 90-minute presentation, followed by 55 minutes of discussion.


A general familiarity with federal funding agencies and the grants life cycle.

NCURA webinars use the Zoom Webinar platform. To confirm that you are ready to participate, please test your browser before joining the webinar, or review the more detailed system requirements.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser either Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Edge or Safari.  
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
