Nowadays, the knowledge, the transparency and the quality of vaping products are critical issues in order to fight against smoking. In the absence of credible scientific studies on the health consequences of vaping, the creation of the CRIVAPE is a scientific answer, which aims to feed the public health debate and to cut off alarmist polemics.

PRESENTATION OF THE CRIVAPE

The Research and Innovation Center for the Vape (CRIVAPE) is an independent organization which contributes to providing scientific knowledge about vaping, to smoking cessation and to potential applications in the health field. It is managed by Sébastien Roux, Doctor of Science, Engineer.
