Export Controls > Research


Cornell University Guidelines on Sensitive and Proprietary Research adopted by the Cornell Research Council on May 20, 1985 and subsequently updated by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research states:

Given the open nature of Cornell University, research projects which do not permit the free and open publication, presentation, or discussion of results are not acceptable. Nor will the university enter into any agreements unless the principal and co‐principal investigators have the final authority on what is to be published or presented. In particular, research which is confidential to the sponsor or which is classified for security purposes is not permitted at Cornell University. The university will accept only sponsored research projects which are expected to further the research and educational mission of the institution.
