Amsterdam will be the new host of the European Medicines Agency

The European Medicines Agency (EMA), today located in London, UK, will as a consequence of the Brexit referendum relocate to a new location within the EU.

As EMA is not only seen as prestigious, but brings a regular flow of visitors to boost local hotels and businesses, 19 EU countries asked for the opportunity to host the new EMA. On the 20 November 2017 the European Council decided by vote; EMA will move to Amsterdam. EMA has already started working with the Dutch government to ensure a successful move by end of March 2019.
