You are cordially welcomed to participate in the final SILNE project conference which will take place on 8 December 2014 in the Brussels European Parliament premises.
You will be presented empirical evidence obtained in SILNE and similar projects on socioeconomic inequalities in smoking and in the impact of tobacco control, and you will discuss the implications for future tobacco control at European, national and local levels.
Access to the conference is free of charge.
The conference will be held in English. Interpretation will not be profided.
The conference is not open to persons or organisations working for or associated with the tobacco industry, its liaison groups or subsidiaries.
During the provided lunch, you will have a chance to network with the project group.
Further logistical details will be provided upon registration.
We should be pleased to welcome you to our event. Please note that, due to space restrictions at the venue, registrations will be treated on a first come, first served basis. We therefore encourage you to register early.
