Your university spends untold dollars and hours on negotiating terms and processing hundreds, maybe even thousands of MTAs every year. And since MTAs can have serious ramifications in terms of rights to resulting inventions, for future licensing agreements, and for publication rights, it’s not a process you should be taking lightly or rushing through.

That’s why we’ve created Best Practices in Material Transfer Agreement Management. This highly-rated distance learning collection includes two practical programs that deliver specific strategies to help you manage your agreements, your time, and your IP. Here are more details on the two-program collection:

1. Material Transfer Agreement Management: Negotiation Strategies to Strengthen Legal Protection and Gain Efficiency — The way MTAs are negotiated and managed can have a huge impact on your organization’s productivity, since the volume and processing time can combine to overwhelm an already overworked staff. You gain solid guidance from two experts at the University of Iowa who have successfully addressed the MTA challenge, and are ready to share their strategies with you.

2. Managing Material Transfer Agreements: Key Practices for Saving Time and Money — The Vanderbilt University TTO’s home-grown MTAShare automated MTA management system enables an extremely streamlined process, slashing both paperwork and many hours of staff time associated with processing material transfer agreements. Alan Bentley, assistant vice chancellor for technology transfer in the Vanderbilt Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization (CTTC), leads this session and shares exactly how the university tackled its MTA workload, culminating in this time- and money-saving automated solution.
