Can CROs be a party making available resources against payment?


In Horizon 2020 third parties (i.e. parties not signing the Grant Agreement) receiving payment can be involved as a contractor for other goods and services (Art. 10 MGA), subcontractor (Art. 13 MGA) or as third parties providing in-kind contributions against payment (Art. 11 MGA). Patient data, for example, can be considered as in-kind contribution. A requirement for ‘in-kind contribution against payment’ is a written agreement between the beneficiary and the third party prior to the start of the work. These third parties need to document their costs in the same way as beneficiaries (actual costs or unit costs). Wherever possible, third parties should be listed in section B4.2 of the full proposal.
