A California university did not report hundreds of millions of dollars in funding from the Chinese government that was used to launch a joint research campus in China, according to The Daily Beast.

Between 2014 and 2018, the University of California at Berkeley received a $240 million investment from the Chinese government and Tsinghua University — which has been called “China’s MIT” — to launch a joint research facility in Shenzhen, China, known as the Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute (TBSI), a Daily Beast investigation reportedMonday. However, Berkeley never formally disclosed any of the foreign investment to the U.S. government prior to being notified of the investigation, according to the report.

In 2018, Berkeley struck a $220 million deal with the Shenzhen government to construct an approximately 1.7 million-square-foot research campus in China, according to the report. Despite this, Berkeley has never officially reported the $220 million Shenzhen campus deal to the U.S. government, claiming that facilities are still under construction, according to The Daily Beast.:snip:
