Dear IBM Smarter Planet University Jam participant,

Thank you so much for participating in our 2009 Smarter Planet University Jam. The three-day forum held in April brought nearly 2,000 students and faculty together with IBM experts, clients and business partners to discuss ideas for a smarter planet. We truly appreciate all of your outstanding and enthusiastic contributions!

We are pleased to share with you the Jam report entitled “Jamming for a Smarter Planet” which features your thoughtful insights and ideas for innovation on complex global problems including pollution-free, inexpensive energy; the skills students need to compete in the globally integrated economy; environmental protection and water management; and advanced healthcare. In the report we also recognize our top student and faculty contributors from the Jam.

Please visit to read and download the Jam insights summary report, review the press release, and listen to podcast interviews with the top two faculty contributors and Jai Menon, vice president of technical strategy and university programs, IBM. Thank you again for your participation!
