Subject: Stanford Linear Accelerator Center Use and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory Nonproprietary Use Agreements
Attached are copies of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) Use Agreement between Stanford University and The Regents of the University of California and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory . Nonproprietary Use Agreement for the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) between Battelle Memorial Institute and the Regents. Under these Use Agreements, users from the University of California are granted permission to use the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (SSRL), a facility of SLAC, and the Battelle EMSL.
SLAC Use Agreement:
The effective date of SLAC Use Agreement is February 1, 1998 and continues until January 31, 2003.
University researchers that are interested in the SLAC capabilities and how to submit a request to use the facility can find the directions at: http://www-ssrl.slac.stanford.edu/guide.html There are several mechanisms in place for requesting use of this facility. Any questions or required assistance should be directed to: Audrey L. Archuleta, SSRL User Research Administration Manager, (650) 926-3191 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
EMSL Use Agreement:
The Battelle EMSL Use Agreement was effective February 5, 2001, the date it was signed by Battelle. It does not have an end date. So it is in effect until it is terminated by either party or replaced by a new agreement. The individual users complete and sign Appendix B, EMSL Agreement Covering Obligations and Responsibilities of Users. Users should be appropriately notified of the terms of Article X – Certification in the Use Agreement. In this Article, the University has certified that use of the facility is primarily for conducting basic scientific research and not for development of commercial products or services. In addition, Appendix C contains the standard DOE Government rights to patents, copyrights, and data. Users should be aware of these rights if there are any cases where their use of the facility involves research with a for-profit corporation.

I. The Board of Trustees for Leland Stanford, Jr., University (Stanford) operates
the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), a government-owned research and
user facility, under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Upon
execution of this agreement, users from The Regents of the University of California
(hereafter User Institution) are granted permission to use these facilities,
in keeping with Stanford's contract with DOE. The User Institution assumes responsibility
for medical and general liability costs, if any, incurred by User Institution's
employees as a result of their use of SLAC facilities, provided said use is
within the scope and conduct of their employment with User Institution.
II. (a) Users from the sponsoring institution shall:
(1) take all reasonable precautions in carrying out their activities at SLAC, to protect the safety and health of Stanford employees, other users, and the general public, as required by federal, state, and local laws, University rules, and DOE Directives, and
(2) comply with other regulations and laws, such as the University Code of Conduct, statutory limitations on the use of government property, and the federal laws regarding discrimination based on race or gender, applicable to activities at SLAC.
(b) Stanford shall provide to User a copy of applicable laws, regulations, rules, and directives described above. In the event that any User fails to observe and comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies, Stanford may stop all or any part of their work and retract permission to participate as a User or otherwise remain at SLAC.
III. Neither Stanford nor any of its employees, agents, or others acting or purporting to act on Stanford's behalf shall be responsible for failure to perform services or to furnish materials under the users' agreement with SLAC. The User Institution waives any and all claims against Stanford University for personal injury to user or for property damage/loss (for property owned by the User) against Stanford deriving from, connected with, arising under, or related to performance of the experiment or their other activities conducted at SLAC, except to the extent that such injury or damage is caused by the negligent or intentional acts or omissions of Stanford and/or SLAC.
IV. Employee(s) of and/or consultant(s) of User Institution shall be permitted to use SLAC facilities for the purpose of performing the experiment(s) described in the proposal(s) accepted for performance at the SLAC synchrotron radiation facility. This Use Agreement shall apply to all experiment(s) carried out in the future at the SLAC synchrotron radiation facilities.
V. Before commencing the experiment(s), Users expecting to incur costs in running their experiment(s) shall provide an instrument that will allow SLAC to obtain reimbursement from User (or User Institution) for costs incurred in performance of the experiment. User agrees to reimburse SLAC, on presentation of an invoice(s), for all expenses reasonably incurred by Stanford on behalf of the User or at User's request in connection with experiments. However, it is expressly understood that Stanford shall have no obligation to incur expenses on behalf of User. This agreement shall be incorporated by reference in each Supplemental Agreement for proprietary research at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.
VI. This Use Agreement shall become effective February 1, 1998. The Agreement shall continue in force until January 31, 2003.

(2) Such action is necessary to alleviate health or safety needs which are not reasonable satisfied by the User, assignee, or their licensees; or

D. INVENTION IDENTIFICATION, DISCLOSURES, AND REPORTS
The User shall furnish the Patent Counsel a written report containing full and complete technical information concerning each Subject Invention of the User within six months after conception or first actual reduction to practice, whichever occurs first, in the course of or under this Agreement, but in any event prior to any sale, public use or public disclosure of such invention known to the User. The report shall identify the Agreement and inventor and shall be sufficiently complete in technical detail and appropriately illustrated by sketch or diagram to convey to one skilled in the art to which the invention pertains a clear understanding of the nature, purpose, operation, and to the extent known, the physical, chemical, biological, or electrical characteristics of the invention. The report should also include any election of rights under this clause.
