Metis currently holds a master Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Army, which is the US Army’s preferred contract vehicle to transfer technology. A CRADA provides opportunities for Army investigators to collaborate with scientists in industry and academia to attain a common research goal and allow Army scientists to better understand the technology needs of the commercial sector and facilitate a reverse flow of ideas, resources, and funds into the laboratories that are the linchpins of the Army' s technology transfer program. A CRADA also provides the partner with an option to exclusively license inventions made by the Army investigator under the agreement. The purpose of a CRADA is to make government facilities, intellectual property, and scientific expertise available for collaborative interactions in the joint pursuit of common research goals between government entities and non-federal research partners. Metis has a master CRADA with the U.S. Army and routinely negotiates and executes single use CRADAs with our collaborators.
