GUIRR Members' Meeting

Research globalization is on the rise, as seen through increases in international co-authorship of articles, growth of R&D investment abroad, and other indicators.  At this GUIRR meeting, participants will look at how research globalization is impacting U.S. R&D within the context of ensuring national security and economic prosperity, and what roles the government, university, and industry sectors may play in this new globalized environment.
