When should a partner participate as a third party (with a legal link or affiliate) instead of participating as a (regular) beneficiary?
Implementing tasks as a Linked Third Party is an option, not an obligation. It is up to the potential Linked Third Party and to the consortium do decide if it makes use of this option or includes the organisation as an additional beneficiary. In general, entities performing a substantial part of the work (i.e. tasks) should be beneficiaries, and not linked third parties. Linked third parties should only exceptionally perform a major part of the R&I work.
