EQUIPT Final Project Conference

The EQUIPT project held a successful final project conference in Brussels on September 27, 2016.

EQUIPT is a comparative effectiveness research (CER) project in tobacco control, that brings 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.

The final project conference presented all EQUIPT project results and offered a demonstration of the ROI tool by project partners. Around 100 participants took part in the conference, including stakeholders, policy makers and project contributors.

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