As a consequence of Britain’s decision to leave the bloc, the two EU agencies based on its territory will move elsewhere.

EU leaders will start discussing candidates to host the European Banking Authority and the European Medicines Agency at the European Council to be held on 22-23 June.

Almost all member states are bidding for either one of the agencies, or even both of them, as is the case for France and Germany.

  Unitary patent expected this year, despite Brexit 


The European Patent Office on Tuesday (7 March) said that the long-awaited EU patent will be launched this year and that it was confident that the UK would continue its involvement.

But another UK-based institution that forms part of the EU ecosystem escaped the attention of the bloc’s capitals: the upcoming Unified Patent Court.
