AIMday Construct Innovate 30 May, 2023

University of Galway will host AIMday Construct Innovate on Tuesday, 30 May 2023 in the Alice Perry Engineering Building. The event is for Construct Innovate members only.

What Is AIMday

AIMday® (Academic Industry Meeting day) is a successful, proven model based on workshops where challenges submitted by participating organisations around a central theme are discussed with academic researchers from relevant university disciplines.

About Construct Innovate

Construct Innovate ( is Ireland’s national Research Centre for Construction Technology and Innovation. Coordinated by University of Galway and supported by Enterprise Ireland, the Centre includes partner institutions; Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, University College Cork and the Irish Green Building Council.

The Centre’s vision is to make Ireland a global research and innovation leader for sustainable construction and built environment technology.

Construct Innovate brings together the whole value chain to accelerate people-centric innovation in construction and the built environment that drives the transition towards a sustainable society and economy, relying on the active engagement of its members and a European network of innovation.

AIMday Construct Innovate

The research programme of Construct Innovate will be driven by working groups formed by our members. Industry will be supported and empowered to take ownership of the research, development and innovation activities required for the companies’ continued progression, excellence and impact.

AIMday Construct Innovate invites members to pose a business challenge (in the form of a question) faced by their organisation, and seek new knowledge and solutions with a multi-disciplinary group of academic research experts.

Each question submitted by an organisation is workshopped by the relevant academic research experts, with the aim of forming collaborative research pathways to solutions.

Construct Innovate Expertise

• Productivity, affordability and cost
• Quality and safety
• Sustainability

• Collaboration

Addressing Ireland’s Housing Crisis
