We are pleased to announce the Tobacco Control Seminars, organised by the UCT, WHO Collaborating Centre for Tobacco Control.
These seminars introduce challenging topics and current research on tobacco control led by national and international experts in a friendly atmosphere. The seminars are open to professionals and students in the broad area of tobacco control.
The seminars are organized based on the availability of professionals from Barcelona and surroundings and, in the case of international speakers, subject to the casual proximity and opportunity (attending other meetings, holidays, etc.), since there are no specific funds assigned to develop this activity.
