By the end of 2018 the Swedish Initiative for Research on Microdata in the Social And Medical Sciences (SIMSAM), funded by the Swedish Research Council, has been active for 10 years. This will be acknowledged by an open national one-day symposium in Stockholm 16 May reflecting on how the achievements and experiences of SIMSAM and other parties engaged in register-based research can help develop register-based research in Sweden in the future.
In addition to SIMSAM presentations, challenges and possibilities related to register-based research will be highlighted by members of the scientific advisory board of SIMSAM and by representatives of the National Board of Health and Welfare, Statistics Sweden and the Swedish National Data Service.
Anyone with an interest in register-based research is warmly invited to attend this inspiring event, which will take place Wednesday 16th May (9.00-17.20) at Karolinska University Hospital in Solna (Eugeniahemmet). The symposium is jointly arranged by the SIMSAM nodes SUNDEM at Stockholm University and SIMSAM UGIR at Karolinska Institutet.
Registration for the symposium will open early 2018, so please save the date 16th May 2018 in your calendar!
