Everything you ever wanted to know about MTAs and DUAs, but were afraid to ask

Friday, March 2, 2018
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Biological Research Building, Room 105

Representatives from the Technology Transfer Office will discuss and answer all of your questions about these agreements and their related contractual obligations. The answers will be provided to popular questions like:

  • "When, if ever, do I need an MTA/DUA?”
  • “How long will this take/Why is this taking so long?"
  • and the ever popular “Why can’t you sign this MTA right now?”
So join us for a lively discussion about sharing material and data in the modern age. In addition, we will discuss something called tangible materials, and answer the question “Is it true that tangible materials could mean extra money in my paycheck?”. Join us.
