and includes all constructions, strains, derivatives that will be obtained from or as a result of the use of materials (the “materials”) We publish guidelines for the transfer of outgoing materials and for transfers of incoming materials. Therefore, if you would like to send or receive material to a non-UCL researcher, please download the corresponding document on the links to the right of this page. An MTA-Out involves the transfer of university-owned or college-controlled materials to another university, company or other external entity for research purposes. These are processed by the faculty`s research services. The UCL has an MTA directive (material transfer agreements). To find UCL`s MTA directive, visit UCL Innovation and Enterprise, you must use your UCL connection. The UCLB team is responsible for approving, negotiating the terms and signing, on behalf of UCL, of any inbound and outbound equipment transfer agreement (subject to certain exceptions under the UCL MTA Directive). If you need the assistance of an MTA for incoming materials, please complete the MTA application form above or if you wish to provide material to third parties, please complete the due diligence form and forward it to We publish guidelines for inbound and outbound material transfers.

AUTM MTA Toolkit Despite the recognized benefits of standard agreements and the encouragement to use them, the lack of use has led to a missed opportunity to remove barriers to hardware transfer. In 2011, AUTM conducted a survey to measure the use of UBMTA and sLA and to understand why many institutions choose not to use them. The use of standard agreements A long-recognized cost and negotiating time reduction strategy is the use of model agreements or models. In 1995, the NIH published the first and only widely recognized standard agreements for material transfer, the NIH Simple Letter Agreement for the Transfer of Materials (SLA) and the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA), as well as guidelines for the transfer of research instruments. The NIH called on fellows to ensure that the unique research resources from NIH-funded research are made available to the scientific community, either without formal agreement or under conditions or agreements that are no more restrictive for most materials than LA SM, which has been renewed by nrc. Raw material MTAs generally prevent the material supplier from losing control of the material and its use of research. In the absence of an agreement, the recipient of the material has no legal restrictions on the use of the device or the transfer of the equipment. A hardware transfer contract (MTAs) is a contract that protects your intellectual property (IP) when you provide or receive research materials to other institutions or companies. Research materials include cell lines, cultures, bacteria, nucleotides, proteins, transgenic animals, drugs or chemicals. Any exchange of research materials requires an MTA. For the repeated exchange of the same research material, standardized MTAs can help streamline the process.

Equipment transfer agreements (ATMs) govern the transfer of equipment by the owner or licensee (usually referred to as a “provider”) to a third party (usually referred to as a “recipient”) who may want to use the material for research purposes.
