Porto among the favourites to accommodate the European Medicine Agency (EMA)
The study presented this morning at the Palácio da Bolsa and ordered by the Porto Commercial Association, compares 19 applications submitted to the European Commission and places the city in the top positions – it is even qualified as "top performer” – in an assessment with six basic criteria: quality of the accessibilities, social integration of the employees’ families, answer in terms of education, among others.

Besides Porto, strong candidates are identified, such as Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Vienna and Stockholm. Once the first stage of the process is finished, it is now time for the communication of arguments and then the diplomacy stage. The final decision on the city which will receive the EMA will be known on November 20th.
