G-7 plans steps to defend academic research with eye on China

Major economies will craft rules to safeguard tech with military applications

G-7 nations seek to promote free and safe research collaborations among universities and corporations while preventing data leaks.

TOKYO -- The Group of Seven nations will agree on creating guidelines to prevent leaks of sensitive research data when leaders meet this week, Nikkei has learned, looking to protect joint projects amid growing concerns about the risk of theft by China.

The U.S. and fellow major economies will discuss including this in a statement to be released after the three-day summit that begins Friday. The statement will underscore the view that the science and technology cannot be expected to progress without measures to prevent research from being stolen by other countries.
