How to participate and why

We’re inviting organisations and businesses to submit a question relating to a Green Future business challenge by 25 July. Your question will then be tackled by a group of academics with the aim of finding a solution.

Topics your question may be based on, but not limited to:

  • Targeting greenhouse gas reductions
  • Realising a circular economy and sustainability
  • Protecting our nature
  • Developing and deploying net-zero technologies

Our innovation services team are happy to assist you to form or refine your question. Please email if you would like to discuss your question before submitting.

One question, one hour, a group of academic experts: that is the AIMday format!



We recommend that at least two company representatives are available to join the discussion of each of your questions they should be well versed in the topic of the question(s) submitted and be prepared to provide further context and background.
We welcome up to three questions from each participating company or organisation.
Please note that workshops are, in general, open for other companies to observe where relevant, but closed workshops can be requested if required.
Your question(s) and (company) name will be published on this website.
