We are proud to be partners of the hybrid AIMday HealthTech taking place on Tuesday 30 January 2024, on behalf of the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University, and the Medical Device Manufacturing Centre.
Some of the greatest challenges in society today are found within the realm of health and healthcare. An aging population, chronic disease, new and complex health threats, and the cost of healthcare highlight the importance of new and improved solutions.
Engineering, technology, and data can contribute to tackling parts of these grand challenges, providing alternatives and new approaches to improving care and outcomes on individual and system levels. Collaboration between sectors and professions is key to harnessing the potential of the ongoing digital transformation and rapid advancement of health and medical technologies.
AIMday (Academic Industry Meeting day) is our flagship event and comprises of a number of one-hour workshops based on challenges in health, medical and healthcare technologies, posed as questions by businesses and organisations outside academia.
