Turnover (including other operating income) continued to grow in 2010 to the end of the year, reaching an amount of € 12,251,115 - an increase of 21% over the previous year. This is mainly due to increased sales contracts from the Framework contracts and the Evaluation Department and to a lesser extent, the Economic Policy Department. This yields an increase in gross operating margin of about 22% (similar growth to 2009) to attain an amount of € 2,884,165. As you can see in the charts below, the permanent staff evolution reflects the trend in turnover.
