Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - SME-General
As opposed to other instruments, the SME instrument (Phase 2) does not have any restrictions when it comes to subcontracting of tasks; see article 13 (p. 370):
The rules on subcontracting for SME Instrument Ph2 actions are similar to those of the General MGA (see Article 13 General MGA).
However, subcontracting is not restricted to a limited part of the action.
This means that the participating SMEs can subcontract the services of a CRO and/or a hospital without a problem.
