Netherlands Network of Tobacco Control Researchers


The Netherlands Network of Tobacco Control Researchers (NNvT) was established in 2013 to offer a platform for scientific nicotine and tobacco research in the Netherlands. The network consists of researchers from multiple disciplines, including (pre-)clinical research, pharmacology of nicotine addiction, epidemiological studies, and tobacco policy studies.

The NNvT organises an annual one-day conference on nicotine and tobacco research. A committee of professors and senior researchers in the Netherlands is responsible for the organization and the selection of abstracts for the conference. On February 14, 2020, the sixth Netherlands Network of Tobacco Control Researchers conference will take place in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The official language of the conference is Dutch.

All researchers in the field of nicotine and tobacco research in the Netherlands are welcome to present the latest scientific results of their research at the conference. Policy maker and tobacco control specialists are invited to participate, share their expertise and experience, and learn about the latest findings in tobacco control research in the Netherlands. To support new researchers, the National Tobacco Control Research prize is awarded annually to new researchers for outstanding research papers in the field of tobacco control research.

The conference is funded by ZonMw (The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development) and is organised in cooperation with the Trimbos Institute.
