AIMday Construct Innovate Dublin, 24 October 2023

University of Galway will host its second AIMday Construct Innovate on Tuesday, 24 October 2023 at Trinity College Dublin.

What Is AIMday

AIMday® (Academic Industry Meeting Day) is a successful methodology created by Uppsala University in Sweden, where challenges submitted by industry are discussed with a multidisciplinary group of academic researchers in a workshop setting.

The Construct Innovate AIMday will use these workshop sessions to establish working groups with its Associate Members and define research questions that can be further scoped out to develop projects to solve industry challenges.

N.B. To achieve the best outcome from workshop sessions, organisations must tailor their challenge to a specific research question rather than submitting broad general statements and/or industry trends.

Registration for Scientists
