France, host nation to the European Medicines Agency in Lille

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is seeking a new host country and has provided a list of determining criteria in order to make its choice among 22 candidate European cities. The 5 key elements which will be taken into consideration by the European Council when deciding between the candidates are as follows : The ability of the host city to welcome the agency as soon as Great Britain leaves the EU; accessibility; international education; a lifestyle adapted to the needs of EMA employees and their families; and last, but not least, a city which promotes and supports the continuity and efficiency of the work of the Agency.

Lille, representing the French candidacy, unfailingly meets these standards. Analysis of the main advantages of the French candidacy.
