Our purpose

TobaccoTactics aims to provide an overview of people, issues and groups working to shape the agenda on tobacco control and public health, with a particular focus on the role of the tobacco industry. It is a project of the Tobacco Control Research Group (TCRG) at the University of Bath.

Our funders

Some of the research for TobaccoTactics was funded by Cancer Research UK Limited and Bloomberg Philanthropies. This work has previously received funding from The New Venture Fund, Smokefree South West, and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Knowledge Exchange Opportunities scheme.

TCRG is a partner in the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use (BI) and is part of the STOP network.

STOP is a global tobacco industry watchdog whose mission is to expose the tobacco industry tactics that undermine public health. Comprised of a network of academic and public health organisations, STOP researches and monitors the tobacco industry, shares intelligence to counter its tactics, and exposes its misdeeds to a global audience. STOP is funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies as part of the BI.
