Material Transfer Agreement Template – Incoming

A Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is used to manage and record the transport of research material from one party to another, and is required for both incoming and outgoing materials. The attached MTA template is used to facilitate incoming transfers where the University of Delaware is the Recipient of the transfer. Please complete the appropriate sections of the attached MTA template and sign as Recipient Scientist.

Please note that there is a separate template available on this website for outgoing transfers where the University of Delaware is the Provider of the material.

The appropriate MTA template should be used to confirm the terms of transfer for any non-biological materials, or biological materials where the UBMTA available on this website is not applicable.

In addition to the attached MTA, you must also complete a MTA Webform. Attach the completed MTA (with your signature) when submitting a MTA Webform. The Research Office will review the MTA and obtain any remaining signatures.

For more information regarding intellectual property and research, please refer to the Regulatory Affairs page, or for additional questions, please contact Regulatory Affairs at 302-831-2136.
