What We Do 

The Hermes Team, previously known as the NDA/DUA/MTA Team, helps draft, review, negotiate and execute research-related agreements, primarily for the exchange of confidential information, data and materials. We manage a high volume of contracts, varying in complexity, and work closely with other MIT offices such as the Office of General Counsel (OGC), Technology Licensing Office (TLO), and Information Systems & Technology (IS&T). The Hermes Team also provide guidance and support with subject matter expertise to our colleagues in OSATT Core and Research Administration Services (RAS).  

The Hermes team is part of the Strategic Transactions team. For questions about NDAs, DUAs, or MTAs, contact the team at
