The University of Missouri values international collaborations and recognizes that such collaborations are integral to fulfilling our mission as a public, land-grant university, but it is important that MU investigators be open and fully transparent about their foreign relationships and activities. MU’s Division of Research, Innovation & Impact (RII) has compiled the following information to provide guidance and resources for our researchers, and to remind them of their reporting obligations to federal sponsors and to MU.

*These guidelines were adapted with permission from Penn State.


It is important that if University personnel need to engage with a party located in a comprehensively sanctioned destination or if they need to engage with a party subject to targeted sanctions that they partner with UM Research Security and Compliance before the engagement begins. While some activities may be easily permitted by the federal government, some common activities (like research collaborations) may require explicit permission from the federal government.

Review more information on sanctions or contact MU's Export Controls with questions.
