Upcoming Seminars on Industrial Agreement and Material Transfer Agreements

Seminar Series Announcements  – These two seminars are a part of the Intellectual Property portion of The Graduate School Seminar Series.

Seminar Title: How We Collaborate with Industry: Types of Relationships and the Agreements that Govern Them

Presenter: Steve Harsy, Director, Office of Industry Relations, School of Medicine and Public Health
Date: Tuesday, January 11, 2011
Time: 9:30-11:00
Location: UW Biotechnology Center Auditorium, 425 Henry Mall, Room 1111

Abstract: The university enters into various types of relationships with industry. Among these are sponsored research, industry provision of research materials, industry gifts for research, fee for service projects, and data use agreements. Learn how to categorize relationships and how the terms in the agreements that govern them vary. Useful for department administrators and researchers who have active relationships with industry.


Seminar Title: Material Transfer Agreements

Presenter: Steve Harsy, Director, Office of Industry Relations, School of Medicine and Public Health
Date: Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Time: 9:30-11:00
Location: Bascom Hall, Room 334

Abstract: Issues relating to receipt of materials for research purposes will be discussed. Often these materials are necessary components of research projects and are available only from a single source, frequently a company. Because the provider and universities have different missions and goals, Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) terms often must be negotiated to accommodate the needs of both parties. The speaker will discuss the process for establishing an MTA, and terms in MTAs that may conflict with laws or university policies.
