The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR) provides a platform for leaders in science and technology from government, academia, and business to discuss and take action on scientific matters of national importance. These include issues facing partnerships between government, universities, and industry, the academic research enterprise, training of the scientific workforce, the effects of globalization on U.S. research, and others.

In an increasingly interconnected world, science and technology research often transects international boundaries and involves researchers from multiple nations. This paradigm provides both new opportunities and new challenges. As science and technology capabilities grow around the world, United States-based organizations are finding that international collaborations and partnerships provide unique opportunities to enhance research and training. At the same time, enhancing international collaboration requires recognition of differences in culture, legitimate national security needs, and critical needs in education and training.
