in fellowships at universities. The Intergovernmental Personnel Act Mobility Program should be explored as a mechanism for facilitating these exchanges.


Building partnerships between the science and security communities could help us as a Nation to better balance relative risks and benefits as viewed from the different perspectives of the university and security communities. Such collaboration will help educate the two communities in order to achieve a better understanding of the security issues and the consequences for science, higher education, and the future of the U.S. economy. The committee believes that enduring mechanisms should be created to maintain on an ongoing basis the important dialogue needed between these two communities. Improved relationships between these communities will improve awareness of issues before they become a source of controversy or confrontation, and they will help inform regulatory decisions with the appropriate technical and policy expertise.
