The TackSHS is a new research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. Coordinator: Esteve Fernandez.
It aims to improve our understanding of second-hand tobacco smoke and e-cigarette emissions and find ways of tackling the health burden caused by exposure to them. Within a fast changing environment, the project will try to elucidate the comprehensive impact that SHS and e-cigarette aerosols have on respiratory health of the European population and how health impacts vary according to socio-economic parameters with particular emphasis on specific vulnerable groups such as patients suffering from chronic lung diseases.
The project has a duration of four years (November 2015 – November 2019)
