Completion of the bid to host the headquarters of the European Medicines Agency

Friday, 21 July 2017

Greece's offer to host the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which, in light of the Brexit, is to be relocated from London to another EU member state, will be submitted to the European Commission and the European Council by 31 July 2017.

At a meeting co-chaired by the Regional Governor of Attica, Rena Dourou, who also chairs the committee putting together the offer, and Alternate Foreign Minister Giorgos Katrougalos, the final form of the candidacy was approved.

The offer proposes that the EMA be housed at the former premises of the Keranis Tobacco Company, in Piraeus. As of today, Greece's bid to host the headquarters of the EMA has its own website, at www.emathens.eu.

The decision on relocation of the EMA will be taken by the competent EU bodies in November 2017.
