    US blacklists 'China's MIT' as tech war enters new phase

    The U.S. war on Chinese technology has entered a new phase, with universities in the country added to Washington's blacklist of tech entities. The 100-year-old Harbin Institute of Technology has had its access to critical engineering software cut off, a joint education plan with the University of Arizona is now in limbo, and academic exchange programs with the University of California, Berkeley, are no longer available, the Nikkei Asian Review has learned.

    "For organizations now on the entity list, it will become more difficult for U.S. academic institutions to consider collaboration," said Paul Triolo, head of geotechnology research at New York-based risk consultancy Eurasia Group. "U.S. academic organizations will have to increasingly weigh the reputational costs of collaborating with Chinese organizations that have been associated with China's military programs or other controversial actions."
