High-quality expertise is a key factor in maintaining or developing the confidence manufacturers have in their agency. I am confident that the links between the National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM) and the EMA will be strengthened if the latter is installed in our territory.
Most importantly, the agency would be located just one hour away from Paris: This guarantees considerable time savings when we meet with regulatory authorities.
With a rich historical heritage, the European Metropolis of Lille has made culture a major asset in its development and attractiveness.
Lille is located half an hour by TGV from Brussels, home of the European institutions and less than an hour from Paris. For employees of the agency who will keep a connection with London (family, friends, etc.), the Eurostar provides a quick connection between Lille and London.
Finally, property and rental are cheaper than in other European cities.
