How can you distinct between subcontracts and cost for services as service contracts in research projects?
How can you distinct between subcontracts and cost for services as service contracts in research projects: are pure measures of scientific samples belonging to services (if not including scientific work) and in contrast is a R&D contract including research belonging to subcontract? How can you then proceed in a marginal case like blood measurements with a resulting standard analysis which later on will be scientifically evaluated and incorporated into the work action?
To a large extend, the distinction between contracts and subcontracts is project-specific. If the work to be outsourced is defined as an action task in Annex 1 of the Grant Agreement, the related contract is considered a subcontract. In contrast, a contract does not cover the implementation of an action task, but is necessary for the implementation of a task by beneficiaries themselves.Nike Zoom Vomero 14
