VacSam - Digital eService for Coordinated Vaccination Control
The VacSam research project is of joint venture character, collaboration between the Department of Informatics, Lund School of Economics and Management and The Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control (SMI). For additional information please visit a Smarter Planet.
VacSam is nominated as one of the potential winners of IBM Smarter Planet Award 2011 (a.k.a IBM Software Day 2011). The nomination as such is of course flattering but also significant for the relevance of VacSam.
