AIMday or Academic Industry Meeting day is a one-day event providing an effective and focused way for companies to meet with multi-disciplinary researchers from across the University.

The event is made up of a series of one-hour workshops that tackle a challenge posed by an individual company around a central theme – for example Energy, Construction or Materials. By bringing together multi-disciplinary researchers and their ideas, the event can generate unique perspectives on how to solve a particular problem.
