The AIMday concept has been used in several areas, including cancer research, diagnostics, materials science, aging and imaging. It has proven to be an effective tool for generating new contacts, new ideas and new approaches to solving problems - driving innovation forward.
AIMday was initiated and successfully developed by Uppsala University in Sweden. Innovation Enterprise has signed a collaboration agreement with Uppsala University with the purpose of implementing the AIMday concept in North America.
Mutual benefits for academia and industry:
Academic researchers gain valuable insights into ‘real-world’ problems and how these relate to their own research
Industry gains access to academic specialists who can contribute to solving industry problems
