Transfer materials

About this business activity

A Materials Transfer Agreement (MTA) is a legal contract governing the transfer of materials between two parties, typically for research or development. MTAs can help protect the transferring party's intellectual property rights and ensure the material is used as agreed.

Sample Materials Transfer Agreement (Lambert)

This sort of agreement might be used when a company has agreed to allow an academic, institution or industrial partner to use certain materials in connection with a research project.

This agreement in particular provides for the University owning the IP in the Results, but assigning the IP in any Improvements to the Company. It follows the scheme of Lambert Model Agreement 1, with the Company being granted a non-exclusive right to use the Results. Β (Unlike Lambert Model Agreement 1, the Results are defined in this form of Materials Transfer Agreement as the results arising from the use of the Materials (and not the results of the collaborative research project as a whole).

The University and the Company might, depending on the circumstances, follow the scheme of Lambert Model Agreement 2 or 3, giving the Company the opportunity to negotiate an exclusive licence or an assignment of the IP in specific Results, or Lambert Model Agreement 4 or 5, giving the Company ownership of the IP in the Results.
