European Union

Committed to European Union Training Missions (EUTM) operations in the present and in the past, Eurocorps is strengthening its relations with the European institutions and aspires to become the privileged rapidly deployable headquarters for European Union operations. Our headquarters is ready to play a greater role and promote cooperation with the European External Action Service.

The signature of a ‘Letter of Intent’ between Eurocorps and the European Union Military Staff on 18 January 2016, has represented a significant move to develop closer ties with European Union institutions and to embed Eurocorps within the Common Security and Defence Policy structures and mechanisms.
