EPICENTER (the European Policy Information Center)

EPICENTER was launched in 2014 and states that it is funded entirely by the Institute of Economic Affairs, which has a long history of tobacco industry funding. It is a collective of eight European think tanks, which provides a “free-market perspective” in European policy debates, on topics including public health. EPICENTER has challenged the EU Tobacco Products Directive. Philip Morris International listed itself as a member of EPICENTER in 2018 but has taken this down since.
