SIMSAM-INFRA is a special project led by Magnus Stenbeck in collaboration with the manager of SND and the SIMSAM steering group, including the SIMSAM coordinator Anna Holmström. SIMSAM INFRA will terminate by the end of 2016, when services developed by SIMSAM INFRA are taken over by the Swedish Research Council (VR) and the Swedish National Dataservice (SND).
An information booklet on the importance and benefits of register-based research has been produced under the management of SIMSAM-INFRA. It contains examples of SIMSAM’s accomplishments and ongoing work in order to improve health and living conditions for the population by using existing Swedish registers. The booklet is meant to be informative for policy makers and the general public and perhaps it will also encourage increased scientific collaboration.
