Eurocorps

The Eurocorps in Strasbourg, France, is a multinational, fully deployable and highly autonomous headquarters comprising Germany, France, Belgium, Spain and Luxembourg as Framework Nations and is open to all EU member and NATO-associated states. The Eurocorps is prepared to plan and conduct military operations spanning the entire mission and intensity spectrum.

Mission

The Eurocorps is foremost a military headquarters (HQ) comprising a staff as well as support units. The Corps can command as many as 60,000 personnel.

Multinationally organised

The HQ is manned by soldiers from France, Germany, Spain, Belgium and Luxembourg, as so-called Framework Nations. The Eurocorps is augmented by military personnel from Associated Nations – Poland, Greece, Italy, Turkey and Romania.

Operational since 1995, the Strasbourg-based ‘Headquarters Eurocorps’ has already participated in numerous missions in regions such as Afghanistan, Kosovo and Africa.

In peacetime a multinational command support brigade is subordinate to the multinational corps headquarters and its air and naval liaison teams.

The Corps provides forces for, amongst others, NATO’s rapid response force.
