Location:  The Creative School, Toronto Metropolitan University

Fast track solutions through industry-academic collaboration

The creative industries are in a critical period of post-pandemic recovery, so working collaboratively to “future proof” industries, including (but not limited to) fashion, media, music, performance, journalism, film, and professional communication, is more critical than ever.

Academic Industry Meeting day, or AIMday™, is an internationally recognized opportunity to tackle questions around a central theme. This highly effective program enables university-based researchers and organizations to connect and bring world-class research to life. By matching organizations’ need for new knowledge with academic expertise, AIMday brings understanding and new perspectives to real-world problems.

Established in 2008 at Uppsala University, Sweden, AIMday has been implemented and refined by leading universities around the world.

Hosted by Toronto Metropolitan University’s Creative School, AIMday™ Creative Industries aims to address current challenges that affect the creative industries.
