Board of Directors

their implementation. Subject to the powers expressly attributed to the Shareholders’ General Meeting, and
within the scope of the company’s corporate purpose, the Board of Directors’ powers cover all issues relating

composition. In particular, the Board seeks to ensure gender balance and a broad diversity of backgrounds and
countries of origin, international experience, reflecting R&D’s status as a diversified global business.
Above all, the Board seeks directors who show independence of mind and who are competent, dedicated and committed.

Our team based primarily in Monaco and France works hard to ensure medicines gain and maintain the market or regional regulatory authorisations they need to ensure patients have access to both our new and older, medically important, R&D medicines.
To ensure that medicine approvals are managed efficiently, our policy team monitors how the regulatory environment is changing and how this might impact drug approvals in different markets.
