Material Transfer Agreements (MTA) Inbound/Outbound

The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects (ORSP) oversees the various stages of contract negotiation and execution of MTAs. ORSP works with University Counsel and other campus offices to address potential concerns and to ensure that the terms of the agreement align with the goals of the researchers and the University.

Outbound - An agreement which allows university researchers to provide research materials to an outside institution while still protecting Loyola Marymount University's Intellectual Property rights in the research material.

Inbound - An agreement which allows university researchers to obtain tangible research materials from outside entities. The MTA defines the rights of the provider and the recipient with respect to the materials and any derivatives.
