Aeronautical group European EADS had many difficulties in 2006, interpreted as ?problem of governance?. This interpretation is not sufficient. We propose two complementary explanations: these difficulties of governance result from a too long distance, at the same time of a geographical and relational nature. We use a definition of proximity with spatial and non spatial dimensions to develop our argumentation. With geographical proximity, we distinguish institutional proximity and organisational proximity. First is understood as a relational availability, second as conforming and sharing institutions, third as a particular form of the preceding one which articulates political coordination and cognitive coordination. Difficulties of EADS are mainly interpreted as the result of a lack of institutional proximity.
