EQUIPT


EQUIPT is a comparative effectiveness research (CER) project in tobacco control, funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) from 2013-2016.

The project brought together expertise from multiple disciplines and aims to provide policy makers and wider stakeholders with bespoke information about the economic and wider returns that investing in evidence-based tobacco control including smoking cessation agendas can generate.

Led by Health Economics Research Group (HERG) at Brunel University, London, EQUIPT was a partnership of 11 consortium members from 7 member states – Belgium, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK.
