AIM day in Healthy Ageing

Academic Industry Meeting Days (AIMdays)  provide a platform for businesses to host roundtable discussions with groups of self-selecting academics who have a genuine interest in the business’ challenges. Each discussion is centred around a question posed by the industry partner in advance of the day. This gives the industry partners a chance to set their own agenda, to ensure that they get full value from the day.

These questions will then be opened up to the full breadth of the UK SPINE’s academic and clinical community, allowing researchers who have a common interest in these challenges to register for the AIMday and take part in the discussions with the industry partner.

FREE registration via: - closing date: 27th September 2019.
