Following a meeting of the Board of Directors and discussions with the central works committee, CNES President Yannick d'Escatha outlined CNES's new directorate structure and proceeded to appoint directors with effect from 1st September 2003:
Three CNES entities and their directors have remained unchanged:
The new directors have been asked to map out the way their particular directorate will be structured and run. During the transition phase, from 1st September to 31st December 2003, the current structure will continue to exist. Each of the current entities will be temporarily allocated to one of the newly appointed directors. After further discussions with the central and local works committees, the President will instigate implementation of CNES's new structure from 1st January 2004.
Shortly after his appointment as CNES President, Yannick d'Escatha announced that he would focus first on CNES programmes (CNES Board meeting of 30th April) then on the future of launch vehicles (ESA Ministerial council meeting of 27th May) before tailoring CNES structures appropriately by the summer.
