AIMday Women’s Health 2022
Organised by …
The University of Oxford will be hosting an AIMday in Women’s Health on Tuesday 22nd March 2022 at the Blavatnik School of Government. This event will bring together academic excellence from across the University of Oxford together with industry to help answer the most pressing challenges in this area, as identified by industry.
An Academic Industry Meeting Day (AIMday) is an innovative networking event that allows external organisations to set the agenda and gain academic perspective into industry challenges. The idea is simple: each AIMday has a specific theme and is centred around small group discussions based on a question posed by the external participating company. Discussions will involve a small group of relevant academics who can provide insight into the questions posed, exchange ideas and explore whether there are common interests. This gives industry partners and researchers the assurance that the topics addressed will be of genuine interest, while also providing the opportunity to gain fresh insights, meet potential collaborators, and grow a network.
Please note that all discussions on the day are non-confidential, however we are happy to set up closed meetings with any contacts you make following on from the event.
How it works:
Step 1: External companies submit a question (or questions) on a topic that would benefit from academic input and insight
Step 2: Oxford’s researchers sign up to participate in discussions around question topics
Step 3: On the day, each question forms the basis for a face-to-face, 1-hour workshop hosted by the company
The Business Partnerships Team will be available to follow up any productive discussions with researchers and external partners. The day is interspersed with opportunities for networking and informal discussion. Find out more about how AIMdays work here.
We are planning to hold this AIMday as an in-person event, Covid restrictions permitting. If this is not possible, we will revert to a virtual event format. We will keep you updated in advance of our plans. For more information about the event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
