Research Security

The Office of International Activities, Research Security, and Interagency Coordination (IRIC) works to uphold the norms, principles, and values of openness, transparency, and reciprocal collaboration while safeguarding the integrity and security of DOE-funded science. We do this by providing policy advice and strategic direction to the Office of Science; coordinating with other elements of the Department of Energy, other U.S. Government agencies, and our international partners; and engaging with the research community.
