Critical technologies identified include chip manufacturing, artificial intelligence, quantum technologies, and biotechnologies.

The package includes initiatives such as strengthening regulations for foreign direct investment, harmonizing export controls, supporting research in dual-use technologies, enhancing research security, and developing a new tool to control sensitive knowledge leaking to enemy countries.
