New item


Following our previous announcement and in response to the rapidly changing situation relating to the COVID pandemic, the GFN Team are continuing to review plans for the eighth edition of the Global Forum on Nicotine (#GFN21).

Whilst we are still aiming to hold the event 17-19 June next year, the structure and location for it are still subject to confirmation. Although it is unlikely that circumstances will enable everyone to travel and be part of a face-to-face meeting, we hope that positive developments with regard to vaccines might enable us to hold a limited gathering, with the remainder of GFN being produced online.

The GFN Team have received an encouraging amount of feedback and some questions, arising from the initial announcement of the event and are examining a number of options at the present time. In the light of this, we are delaying the opening of the registration system and call for abstracts, until a final plan is in place. We aim to finalise arrangements by the beginning of January, in order to allow for fine-tuning in the latter stages of organisation.

Although the theme for GFN 21 is still to be decided, the programme will include sessions to examine the impact of the review of the EU TPD 2, as well as considering the likely agenda and action surrounding FCTC COP 9, re-scheduled for November next year, in the Netherlands. Thoughts for other potential topics would be welcomed at this stage. If you have any suggestions, or questions for the team, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We regret the delay in preparations for GFN 21 but hope that you will bear with us as we try to ensure the best alternative in the current environment. The team will continue to provide updates via mailings and social media (on Twitter @GFNicotine and and we look forward to you joining us for #GFN21 next year.
