The official inauguration of the new OCCAR Paris site has taken place on December 18, 2019, concurrently with the Board of Supervisors’ second-semester meeting.
The move of staff and equipment took place the weekend 18 to 20 October and was a major component of the Paris Site Transformation. The transformation comprehends a number of projects managed by the Corporate Support Division (Paris Site Management (lead), ICT and Security) to ensure state-of-the-art technical infrastructure and services to support OCCAR-EA business operations in the next decade.
“I would like to thank France for its valuable support in the Paris site transformation and congratulate the Corporate Support Division for a job well done, again in time and budget”, the OCCAR Director said.
The Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (French: Organisation Conjointe de Coopération en matière d’ARmement; OCCAR) is a European intergovernmental organisation that facilitates and manages collaborative armament programmes through their lifecycle between the nations of Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
