EISCAT Headquarters are located just outside Kiruna at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics. Headquarters is connected to the operational sites in Kiruna, Sodankylä, Tromsø and Longyearbyen via the Internet.
The administrative and financial functions are integral parts of EISCAT Headquarters. Many of the internal rules and procedures are controlled using different forms. Other procedures are explained in memos. The Director has his office at Headquarters, but travels are common, both for the director and other personel.
At the moment 13 people work at Headquarters. Including all the sites the staff adds up to 23.
The regularly occurring annual staff meetings are called Annual Review Meetings (ARM).
