Member states have until the end of July to submit their bids to host the European Medicines Agency, which is currently in London.
The European Commission will then review the bids by 30 September, based on six criteria. A final decision is expected in November in a Eurovision-style voting process.

She spoke to EURACTIV’s Sarantis Michalopoulos in a telephone interview ahead of the official presentation of the Dutch bid today (11 July) to host the EMA.
