AIMday Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine held on Wednesday 3 April 2019 will bring together academic excellence from across the University of Oxford together with industry to help answer the most pressing challenges in this area, as identified by UK bioscience companies.

An Academic Industry Meeting Day (AIMday) is an innovative networking event that allows external organisations to set the agenda and gain academic perspective into industry challenges. The idea is simple: each AIMday has a specific theme and is centred around small group discussions based on a question posed by the external participant. This gives industry partners and researchers the assurance that the topics addressed will be of genuine interest, while also providing the opportunity to gain fresh insights, meet potential collaborators, and grow a network.

The event is supported by the Advanced Therapies Network (ATN) and representatives will be present at the event. In addition, Elias Zapantis (Programme Manager, MedCity) will be giving an Introduction to the Advanced Therapies Network at the beginning of the AIMday. The ATN aims to support opportunities and knowledge exchange between academic organisations, life science companies and investors. Part of London Advanced Therapies and managed by MedCity, the ATN is running a series of events to discuss the challenges to commercialisation in the sector.


How it works:

Step 1: Organisations submit a question (or questions) in the area that they would like academics to answer

Step 2: Oxford’s researchers sign up to discuss one or more or the questions.

Step 3: On the day, each question forms the basis for face to face, 60 minute meetings

The Business Development Team will be available to follow up any productive discussions with researchers and external partners. The day is interspersed with opportunities for networking and informal discussion.
