International Activities

The Office of International Activities, Research Security, and Interagency Coordination (IRIC) supports collaborative international activities that can take many forms: information sharing, visits and access to respective scientific facilities, research partnerships, joint construction projects and instrumentation development, and in-kind contributions to each other’s projects. IRIC facilitates these activities by liaising with foreign counterparts, providing policy guidance, coordinating among the Office of Science program offices and other elements of the Department of Energy, and developing international agreements.
