Is a third party ‘providing in kind contribution’ in contrast to a ‘linked third party’ never intended to be a research co-operation partner as the other contractual beneficiaries?

Question details: 
Is a third party ‘providing in kind contribution’ in contrast to a ‘linked third party’ according to the existing definition in the AMGA never intended to be a research co-operation partner as the other contractual beneficiaries?
Answer: 

By definition, a third party providing in-kind contributions does not perform any work in the project, so it does not play an active role in the project. Even if it seconds personnel to a beneficiary, this personnel works under the instructions of the beneficiary and not of the third party. In contrast, a Linked Third Party actively carries out work in the project.
