Is subcontracting possible with the affiliates if they are a 3rd party in the contract through Art 14?

Question details: 
Is subcontracting possible with the affiliates if they are a 3rd party in the contract through Art 14? The question is if a linked third party is also the usual provider for the use of equipment (but not the same general direction) is it possible to consider them as contractor. Hence, they will make an invoice to the R&D department of the Beneficiary.
Answer: 

By definition, a Linked Third Party does not charge a price, but declares its own costs in line with the eligibility conditions of the Grant Agreement. Therefore, a Linked Third Party cannot be a subcontractor of a beneficiary in the same project.
