AIMday stands for Academic Industry Meeting day. What makes AIMday truly special is the format of that meeting. Specific questions raised by external organisations form the meeting day agenda. The university then matches these requests with the academic expertise at their disposal. The outcome is a day filled with a series of ‘one question, one hour’ workshops where teams of approximately five to ten individuals sit around a table to candidly discuss each topic.
It’s an exchange of knowledge and ideas focused on finding novel approaches to real-world challenges. It’s simply the idea that a broad mix of academics can provide different perspectives and surprising new avenues to solving problems – and thereby create favourable conditions for continued cooperation between external organisations and academia.
Registration for AIMday is free of charge.
