NDAs, MTAs, and Other Ancillary Agreements - The Basics

(90 minutes) During the lifecycle of a sponsored project, other documents besides the proposal and resulting award may be necessary.  At the proposal stage, you may want to exchange information under a Non-Disclosure Agreement.  In the course of performing the research itself, it may become necessary to share data, materials, or other resources with a partner.  To keep the project moving forward, it’s imperative to know the best way to facilitate such a transfer.  This webinar will examine the different types of ancillary research agreements, when and why they are necessary, and highlight potential negotiation areas.

We recommend testing your browser as soon as possible in case you need to contact your IT department for help.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Make sure that your internet browser is Active X enabled.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
