Here you will find tools, instructions and information about the work with implementing URIS' recommendations at SDU.

In 2020, the Ministry of Education and Research set up a committee on guidelines for international research and innovation cooperation. Danish and foreign intelligence shows that international research collaboration can have serious security, economic and ethical consequences. The committee has reviewed existing frameworks for the current cooperation across nations and has since come up with concrete recommendations for new measures.

The implementation of these recommendations is now getting underway in earnest at the University of Southern Denmark, where the rollout continues with Mads Niemann-Christensen at the helm.

The URIS recommendations are generally about identifying and protecting research, knowing collaboration partners, and protecting the institution, the employees and students.

Ready for sparring
If in doubt about security aspects of research collaborations and in other contexts, the good advice is to follow the management line and go to the immediate manager. Mads Niemann-Christensen is happy to provide guidance in specific cases of doubt - he can be contacted by email
