China has been using its relationships with U.S. universities to get the technology and talent it needs to support its military-industrial complex and win the strategic competition with the United States. A new report from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) details Chinese government influence on American universities.

  • Craig Singleton, adjunct fellow at FDD, explained that China uses academic and research partnerships with American universities to enable military-civil fusion, a strategy to obtain cutting-edge technology to support a goal of military dominance.
  • Singleton said the Chinese government has tasked many Chinese universities to support its nuclear weapons program, missile development and cyber espionage platforms.
  • Singleton said FDD contacted several schools before publishing its report, and some of them took action while others defended their partnerships. He said many U.S. universities are unaware of the evolving threat.
