Material Transfer Agreement (MTA)

When ISU researchers want to send material to researchers at other institutions or companies, or receive materials from researchers at other institutions or companies, ISU puts a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) in place. The purpose of an MTA is to clarify how the materials may be used and define the rights and responsibilities of the provider and recipient regarding the use of the materials and any results that may arise from the use of the materials.

Confidentiality Agreement (CA/CDA/NDA)

Confidentiality agreements, also referred to as non-disclosure agreements, are agreements that are used when the owner of confidential information wishes to disclose that information to another party (either an individual or a company) usually in the course of business negotiations, and wishes the information to remain confidential. By signing a confidentiality agreement, the recipient undertakes the obligation not to disclose the confidential information as defined in the agreement.
