Eurocontrol in France

Best in France Case Study

Dec. 2003

By: Ms. Nilles, Mr. Humphreys and Ms. Thiébaux

  • The vision of Eurocontrol is to create “one sky for Europe”. The vision transcends:
    • Managing the airspace of 41 European States as a single entity to achieve consistent integrated performance of national air traffic management (ATM) systems.
    • Agreeing and enforcing common standards and procedures for ATM throughout Europe.
    • Using a single standardized set of data for each flight, to be used by all parties involved with the flight, from the departure gate to the destination gate.
    • Partnership and collaborative decision-making between all ATM stakeholders.

why ecc came to france
Why ECC came to France
  • No competitive reason in the commercial sense
  • Per coincidence: when Eurocontrol was founded in 1962 each of the five member states supposed to get one part of it.
  • The facilities have been provided by the French government and there was no other influence on the location selected.
  • Professionalism & high standards
eec values
EEC Values
  • ECC values are ongoing

      • Comfort of work and freedom (for employees)
      • Professionalism
      • Honesty
      • Respect
      • Trust
      • => Public Service

recruitment cost
Recruitment Cost

Advertising (international) – 20K

Depending on the grade of the job and the distance - additional 10 to 50K

Cost of a 'standard' recruitment - 30K

(based on the lowest grade at which ECC recruits, and somebody recruited in our nearest neighbour Belgium, with no family.)

A maximum cost could therefore be 70K.
