Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs) specify the rights, obligations, and restrictions on both the providing and receiving parties with respect to important issues such as ownership, publication, intellectual property, further distribution, permitted uses, and liability.
UF Innovate provides high-quality, expedited service for material transfers while keeping UF investigators’ interests protected. As part of this service, we now have available an Agreement Portal for the imitation and online monitoring of MTAs. UF researchers can request review and approval of an MTA for material coming into UF. UF and outside researchers can request an MTA for material to be sent from UF. Use this link.
