AB - The number of research infrastructures which are being built with significant amount of In-Kind Contributions (IKCs) from partners and stakeholders is on the increase. One of the main advantages of the utilization of IKCs in big science projects is to enable numerous partners with technological and scientific know-how participate directly in such projects. Thus, IKCs promote capacity building in technology and knowledge transfer of these partners. However, management and execution of IKCs are particularly challenging. The 2nd In-Kind Contributions Workshop (IKCW 2015) was organized by the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe (FAIR) with the aim of sharing experiences on the procurement and management of large-scale international science projects through IKCs. This paper focuses on the analysis of the issues pertaining to how to best implement and execute IKCs from the initial phase of assignment until full delivery for both accelerator and experiments. Discussions held during IKCW 2015 are used to highlight these points further. The goal of this paper is to present the reader with a synopsis of the challenges and opportunities faced in procurement through IKCs.
