EMA to launch new corporate website on 27 September 2018
Fresh design and improved features to provide better user experience
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) will launch a new version of its corporate website (www.ema.europa.eu) on 27 September 2018.
The new website will have an improved search, cleaner display on mobile devices, simpler URLs and an updated visual design. These improvements are intended to address important issues with the current website, as highlighted by users.
The current website content and structure will be unchanged. The current URLs for every page and document will also continue to work, thanks to redirects from the current site to the new one for every page and document. However, EMA encourages users who have bookmarked any current URLs to consider updating these after the new website goes live.
EMA is launching its new corporate website now after careful planning to ensure that the site was moved to a new platform before its relocation to Amsterdam next year.
The project to migrate the website was carried out in collaboration with the European Commission’s Directorate General for Informatics (DIGIT), who will also host and maintain the new website on behalf of EMA.
The corporate website is EMA’s main public communication channel with around 600,000 visitors a month.
