The Office for Innovation Development and Commercialization works with members of the UAlbany community to identify, protect, develop and commercialize innovations so that the broader society can gain benefits from research and creative activities conducted at UAlbany. The following forms and templates are commonly used in carrying out our work.
New Technology Disclosure Form (NTD): Use this NTD form to describe and report your innovation to us. Please ensure all inventors sign the form before submitting it to the Office for Innovation Development and Commercialization. If your innovation is software, please complete the Software Addendum appended to the NTD form.
Mutual Confidential Disclosure Agreement (MCDA): When you need to exchange confidential information with someone outside of SUNY or The Research Foundation for SUNY, this MCDA is used to establish an understanding of how the confidential information will be exchanged and protected.
Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA) Implementing Letter: This is used when a UAlbany researcher wants to share a specialized biological research material with a researcher at another non-profit institution that is a signatory to the UBMTA.
Material Transfer Agreement (Outgoing): This Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is used when a UAlbany researcher wants to share a unique non-biological material with a researcher at another non-profit institution, or a specialized biological research material with a researcher at a non-profit institution that is not a signatory to the UBMTA.
