Events, workshops and webinars

We work to increase opportunities for companies to interact with researchers from the University – a conversation can often spark new innovative ideas.

Throughout the year we organise a wide range of workshops, events and activities for companies can find out more about the latest research from the University. We also run a busy calendar of events for University of Edinburgh students and staff.

AIMday Bio-Solutions

Tuesday 6 December 2022

Bio-Solutions is about leveraging our academic expertise in living systems and biological materials to provide nature-inspired solutions to societal, industrial, and environmental problems.

AIMday (Academic Industry Meeting day) comprises a number of one-hour workshops based on Bio-Solutions challenges posed as questions by companies and organisations outside academia.

At AIMday, your challenges are matched to our academic researchers with expertise in different fields. On the day itself, you will meet our academic researchers and discuss your challenge to explore potential solutions and build partnerships. After the event, our academics can apply for funding from an exclusive funding call, to work with you on a topic you have identified together.

Registration closes on Friday 7 October 2022.
