Mission and vision
In 2010, the BCMT Management Committee, recognizing the need of having a statement defining the fundamental purpose of the BCMT in a more modern and more precise way than its founding decree, adopted the following mission and vision statements:
The mission of the BCMT is to provide ground-based geomagnetic observations and data products of the highest quality,
addressing the needs of the French and international geosciences research community, and those of the French
administrations, businesses and citizens.
The vision of the BCMT is to be one of the key components of the global geomagnetic observation system, combining a
high level of consistency and robustness in its long-term operations and an ability to quickly innovate as a response to
new scientific and societal needs.
