The 8th Global Forum on Nicotine (GFN 2021) was held in Liverpool, England, and was also available for remote-attendance for online viewers. This conference focuses on the role of alternative nicotine products that help adult smokers switch to them from cigarettes. Those alternative products include e-cigarettes, nicotine pouches, oral tobaccos, and heated tobacco products.

The theme this year was “The future for nicotine”, with sessions on topics ranging from “Investment in Nicotine Innovation: risks and rewards for public health” to “Science: orthodoxy, challenges and dissent,” with several panel discussions and other sessions along the way.
