Helping to answer the most pressing challenges in antimicrobial resistance, as identified by UK bioscience companies.
The University of Oxford, together with the NIHR Community Healthcare MIC, are hosting an AIMday in Antimicrobial Resistance on Thursday 4 July 2019. The AIMday 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 UK bioscience companies.
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 participant. 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.
How it works:
Step 1: Organisations submit a question (or questions) in the area that they would like academics to answer
Step 2: Oxford’s researchers sign up to discuss one or more or the questions.
Step 3: On the day, each question forms the basis for face to face, 60 minute meetings
The University of Oxford's Business Development 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.
