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



EUREST-PLUS, a thirteen-partner EU joint project, coordinated by ENSP (Coordinator: Constantine Vardavas), aims to monitor and evaluate the impact of the TPD at an EU level. The specific objectives of the project are:

  • To evaluate the psychosocial and behavioural impact of TPD implementation and FCTC implementation, through the creation of a longitudinal cohort of adult smokers in 6 EU MS (Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Spain) in a pre- vs. post- study design.
  • To assess support for TPD implementation through secondary dataset analyses of the 2015 Special Eurobarometer on Tobacco Survey (SETS), and through trend analyses on the merged datasets of the 2009, 2012 and2015 SETS datasets.
  • To document changes in e-cigarette product parameters (technical design, labelling, packaging and chemical composition) following implementation of Article 20 of the TPD.
  • To enhance innovative joint research collaborations, through the pooling and comparisons across both other EU countries of the International Tobacco Control (ITC) Project, and other non-EU countries
