Attracting the EMA to Sweden

Extensive campaign material will be used to market Uppsala internationally.

During 2017, Uppsala BIO, together with other bodies including Uppsala Municipality, STUNS, Stockholm County Council, Stockholm Science City and the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, conducted the campaign ‘EMA to Sweden’. However, a decision was taken in autumn 2017 not to relocate the EMA (European Medicines Agency) from London to Sweden but to the Netherlands and Amsterdam instead. Nevertheless, the material produced can be put to good use in other contexts to market Uppsala internationally.
