ABSTRACT
Background:
One of the main goals of JATC-2 is to strengthen cooperation between European countries in the area of tobacco control and facilitate dissemination of knowledge regarding best practices for tobacco control and enforcement of Tobacco Products Directive, Tobacco Advertising Directive and the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, contributing also to the new European Cancer Action Plan.

Objective:
The general objective of Work Package 2 (WP2) is to maximize the impact of the action by supporting the consultation with stakeholders and the dissemination of the project’s processes, updates, results, and recommendations of JATC 2 to the target audiences.

Methods:
We will: a) create JATC-2 visual identity and communication tools (new logo, project leaflets, templates, e-newsletters, website and social media accounts); b) create a dissemination plan for the development and reporting of all dissemination activities for promoting health literacy in the field of tobacco; c) perform a Stakeholders Analysis aiming at mapping the stakeholders involved in tobacco control in all partner Member States including existing networks and EU-funded or international projects, policy makers, professionals, other stakeholders and a wider audience at EU level; and d) participate in EU level dissemination events and organize the JATC-2 final conference.

Results:
Logo and templates were finalized to be used by all project partners, and social media accounts and dissemination plan were created. First project leaflet, website and stakeholder analysis are being prepared.

Conclusions:
WP2 activities are progressing throughout the project in collaboration with other WPs to stimulate the interest and the attention of the scientific community and policy makers at national and European level as well as to help general public to gain knowledge regarding various aspects referred to tobacco consumption.
