Utrecht University does not want money from the tobacco industry after all
Utrecht University will not allow an investigation into cigarette smuggling to be paid by a research fund founded by tobacco giant Philip Morris. After social pressure from, among others, the Dutch Cancer Society, the university decided to raise the necessary 360,000 euros itself.
“The tobacco industry is not a normal industry and it is therefore undesirable that they finance scientific research”, says KWF [Dutch Cancer Society] director Sigrid Attema. Half of smokers die of their addiction. In the Netherlands that number is 20,000 annually, according to the KWF. Attema therefore calls the choice of the university “a sensible step”.
The KWF has 92 studies at institutions affiliated with Utrecht University. The KWF would no longer finance any future research if the university were to join forces with the Philip Morris International (PMI) Impact Fund. In new conditions of the KWF it says that researchers financed by them should not have any ties with the tobacco industry.
