牛津大学宣布暂停接受华为的赞助与捐赠

据英国BBC news,牛津大学暂停了来自中国电信巨头华为的新捐赠与赞助。华为正遭受美国和其他国家的指控,认为其设备可能用于间谍行为。但是华为否认了这些指控。

菊叔认为牛津大学这种政治正确的做法有些太low了,不过也许是迫于无奈吧,只是说暂时不会从华为拿新的资金,但是也说了希望有关华为的争议问题尽快得到解决。

唉,还能不能让人好好做博士好好做科研了?!

这就是以前的一句广为流传的科学家说过的名言,大意是“科学无国界,但是科学家有他们的祖国”,现在我们可以说,“教育无国界,但是教育机构有他们的祖国”了。

不过这句话的原作德国人哈珀的说法好像是,“在和平时期,一个科学家是属于全世界的;但在战争时期,他却属于他的祖国。”,所以,现在大概是属于贸易战时期,所以,好像牛津做得也没有什么不对。(此处亟需一枚狗头)

如下为新闻的详细内容:

The University of Oxford has suspended new donations and sponsorships from Chinese telecoms giant Huawei.

The firm is facing accusations from the US and other countries that its equipment could be used for espionage.

Huawei has denied those claims, saying it doesn't pose a spying risk.

The US is also reportedly investigating Huawei for "stealing trade secrets" from US businesses, and has accused it of contravening sanctions by lying about its business in Iran.

Oxford University said it had decided on 8 January that it will "not pursue new funding opportunities... at present" with Huawei.

"Huawei has been notified of the decision, which the university will keep under review. The decision applies both to the funding of research contracts and of philanthropic donations."

"The decision has been taken in the light of public concerns raised in recent months surrounding UK partnerships with Huawei."

It added that it hoped those matters can be resolved shortly.

It's believed the university is concerned about any potential government restrictions on the telecoms giant in the future.

Oxford added that it would continue with its existing research contracts where Huawei funding has been received or committed.

"We currently have two such on-going projects, with a combined funding from Huawei of £692,000. Both projects were approved under the university's regulatory processes before the current levels of uncertainty arose," it said.

A Huawei spokesman said: "We have not been informed of this decision."
