About Material Transfer Agreements

Material Transfer Agreements (MTA) establish which party is the provider and receiver of materials, the extent of the provider’s ownership and the receiver’s usage, compliance with the individual terms and conditions on use of materials, and also protects the intellectual property interests of both the provider and receiver.   The UD Research Office handles both incoming MTAs, where the University is receiving research materials from other entities, as well as outgoing MTAs, where researchers are sharing UD materials with an outside entity.  To request an MTA, please complete the Material Transfer Agreement Webform below.  In addition to information related to the transfer, the form requires that the requestor attach a completed MTA draft:

  • For incoming materials, attach the agreement template given to you by the provider institution. If no agreement was provided to you by the outside party, complete the Incoming MTA form provided in the forms below.
  • For Outgoing materials complete and attach the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA)for biological materials or MTA template for non-biological materials, or as an alternative to the UBMTA if desired.

The system will automatically populate the routing sequence for each request, however, the requestor may include additional approvers who should review/approve the transfer request.  The Research Office will review the template, and secure appropriate approvals for final execution of the MTA.  The Research Office will notify the requestor once all approvals have been met, and the agreement has been fully-signed.  Note that materials cannot be sent or received until the MTA has been fully-signed.
