Our Governance

The governance of Medicen Paris Region is organised within the framework of an association governed by the French law of July 1, 1901, with a general assembly, a board of directors and an executive committee.

Companies have majority representation, equally divided between large and young companies. Universities, research organisations, hospitals and local authorities are also represented.

Bodies

Four bodies:

  • SMEs and young innovative companies
  • Large companies
  • Research (Academic research, higher education and training institutions, hospital research units)
  • Local and regional authorities and organisations with competence in the field of economic development
