    International collaborations in research and education are vital to our work in advancing Duke’s mission. Due to a number of threats identified in 2018 related to foreign influence and diversion of intellectual property, many federal agencies such as NIH, NSF and DOD have increased scrutiny on reporting requirements.

    On June 21, 2020, Duke launched a new International Activities Tab in SPS. The purpose of this new tab is to consolidate existing international questions related to sponsored project proposals while adding further questions to assist with internal processing and requiring the necessary sponsor justifications. The information captured will populate the grant application record in grants.duke.edu for proposals being submitted to federal agencies.
