(iii) In the event that the ISP terminates this agreement under 13 (c) except for violation of this Agreement or for reasons such as an immediate health risk or patent infringement, the ISP will delay the termination for up to one year at the request of the RECIPIENT, in order to complete the ongoing research. From the effective date of the termination or at the request for the deferred termination date, RECIPIENT will cease using the MATERIAL AND will return or destroy the remaining MATERIAL upon instruction from the PROVIDER. The RECIPIENT, at its sole discretion, will also destroy modificationS or remain bound by the terms of this Agreement, as they apply to MODIFICATIONS. Unitectra either creates an MTA for you or reviews a contract that must be signed by the recipient of the material. We also provide an example of MTA for the transfer of materials to other academic groups. This sampling agreement is suitable for biological materials. We are happy to provide you with a custom agreement for other types of equipment or for animals. (ii) if the termination is carried out in point 13 (b) or (d) above, the RECIPIENT will stop using the MATERIAL and return or destroy it on instructions from the SUPPLIER. The RECIPIENT, at its sole discretion, will also destroy the MODIFICATIONS or remain bound by the terms of this contract, as this applies to MODIFICATIONS; and many U.S.
universities use the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA) to exchange materials between academic groups. The universities of Basel, Bern and Zurich are signatories to the UBMTA master`s contract, which facilitates the completion of these UBMTAs. Signing a letter implenting is sufficient in such cases. in a letter of implementation separate from this agreement or other agreement with conditions consistent with the terms of this agreement, to other scientists (at least scientists wishing to replicate scientists` research); provided that these other scientists reimburse the ISP for all costs associated with the preparation and distribution of MATERIAL. Often, the person who provides the material has exaggerated ideas about the possession of the research results obtained with the material. Sometimes even publication is prohibited. Be very careful, especially for materials that have been obtained under an MTA by a company, so as not to let an agreement block your subsequent searches. Always insist on an MTA if you want to control the distribution of your hardware to third parties and/or the commercial application of the material you provide. The transfer of equipment to a company is generally governed by a commercial licensing agreement and not by an MTA. A material transfer contract (MTA) is a contract that governs the transfer of research material between two organizations when the recipient intends to use it for his or her own research purposes.
The MTA defines the rights of the supplier and the rights and obligations of the recipient with respect to materials and all offspring, derivatives or modifications. Biological materials such as reagents, cell lines, plasmids and vectors are the most frequently transferred materials, but MTAs can also be used for other types of materials such as chemical compounds, mouse models and even certain types of software. Sometimes suppliers seek new intellectual property (IP) rights, which are created as a result of material sharing under the terms of an MTA. 7 IP can contain all patentable inventions made by a recipient researcher using the supplier`s hardware. Suppliers may also attempt to limit the transfer of changes made by the recipient, which are materials produced by the recipient and containing or containing the original material.
