Following successful AIMdays focusing on Microscopy and Ageing, Medical Sciences' Divisional Business Development Team will be running an AIMday in Biomedical Imaging, a broad topic which offers the opportunity to discuss the analysis, enhancement and display of images captured via x-ray, ultrasound, MRI, nuclear medicine and optical imaging technologies. A range of companies including GSK, GE Healthcare, Siemens, and Blue Earth Diagnostics are registered to attend, giving researchers a chance to network with industry and discuss relevant questions.
AIMdays (Academia Industry Days) are a concept which facilitate interaction between industry and academia. Born at the University of Uppsala in 2008, they have increasingly gathered attention and use at universities across the globe looking to match researchers with industrial partners.
Interested industry partners are invited to submit questions around a certain topic. Academics then choose which of these questions they would like to answer, depending on their particular area of expertise. The AIMday algorithm designs a programme of one-hour sessions that matches industry partners and academics by their shared interests so that sessions can run in parallel, and interaction between industry and academics is maximised.
