Material Transfer Agreement

UCSB and the Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation have arranged special terms and conditions to address all intellectual property issues related to research done through MC-CAM. Materials created during this research may have important intellectual property value, so it is critical to the legal agreement between UC and Mitsubishi that these materials be easily identified and tracked. A streamlined procedure to track the material has been created. Therefore, all MC-CAM researchers who wish to send material to Mitsubishi must comply with the following procedure before the material may be sent:

  • 1. Notify Sara Bard (sara@mc-cam.ucsb.edu) in writing of your need to send the material to Mitsubishi. Include in this notification a scientific description of the material, the quantity to be sent, and to whom it will be sent.
  • 2. Sara will help you to determine if an export license is required for the shipment. Upon completion of the export review, Sara will generate a transmittal letter to be sent to Mitsubishi (with a copy to UCSB MTA Officer Jenna Nakano, nakano@tia.ucsb.edu) identifying the material to be shipped.
  • 3. Sara will notify you when you have permission to ship the material to Mitsubishi, and will assist you with the shipping paperwork.

It is important that this protocol is followed in order for the parties to be in full compliance with the legal agreement between UCSB and Mitsubishi.
