Evidence so far indicates e-cigarettes are far safer than tobacco and may help smokers to cut down or stop smoking. However, more evidence is needed to help inform smokers and policy-makers looking to reduce the harm from tobacco.

The UK E-Cigarette Research Forum (UKECRF) is an initiative developed by Cancer Research UK in partnership with Public Health England (PHE) and the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS). The Forum brings together policy-makers, researchers, practitioners and the NGO community to discuss the emerging evidence and knowledge gaps about e-cigarettes. The group also seeks to identify research priorities, generate ideas for new research projects and enhance collaboration between forum participants.

The UKECRF holds three meetings per year, chaired by Professor Ann McNeill (Kings College London) and co-hosted by Professor Linda Bauld (University of Stirling) and Martin Dockrell (Public Health England), and coordinated by CRUK’s Tobacco Control Policy team.

Cancer Research UK is the most active research funder supporting work on e-cigarettes in the UK.  A number of forum members are currently conducting e-cigarette research funded by CRUK. Several research projects have arisen from discussions and collaborations made at these meetings. As far as we are aware, no other equivalent national forum exists in other countries.

Tobacco Advisory Group (TAG) funding
