Similar concerns have been raised in other countries. In 2021, research in the United Kingdom concluded that British universities inadvertently assisted the Chinese military by sharing sensitive defense research. The report from Civitas alleges that “up to 15 UK universities have [established] relationships with Chinese military-linked universities as well as weapons suppliers or other military-linked companies.”In addition to concerns about the exploitation of sensitive and advanced U.S. technology and research for military use and other purposes, there are concerns that countermeasures will inhibit emerging research, detract from U.S. competitiveness, or disadvantage the U.S. in attracting top students and researchers.
