European Regulatory Science on Tobacco: Policy implementation to reduce lung diseases (EUREST-PLUS)

EUREST – PLUS is a new research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020
Research and Innovation Programme.

The main objective of EUREST-PLUS is to monitor and evaluate the impact of the Tobacco Products Directives (TPD) within the context of WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) ratification at a European level. Thus our main objective is addressed through five integrated research-oriented work packages (WP) in EUREST-PLUS.

Our 4 specific objectives hence are as follows:

  • To evaluate the psychosocial and behavioral impact of TPD implementation and FCTC implementation, through the creation of a cohort of adult smokers in 6 EU MS (WP2- WP3)
  • To assess support for TPD implementation through secondary dataset analyses of the 2015 Special Eurobarometer on Tobacco Survey (SETS). (WP5)
  • To document changes in e-cigarette product parameters following TPD implementation of Article 20 of the TPD. (WP6)
  • To enhance innovative joint research collaborations on chronic, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and in vulnerable populations in high-income countries (HICs), a key priority of the Global Alliance for Chronic Disease (GACD) outlined in the call. (WP4)
