KTH arranges AIMday® Sustainable Solutions for Cities May 15th 2013. AIMday is a concept where researchers during one day discuss concrete solutions on actual problems that companies and organisations are facing. Companies and organizations have sent in their questions they want to discuss with you as a researcher – these questions are now published on the website. Welcome to visit the website and register for those questions you have a special interest in. Participation in AIMday® can lead to future collaborations and contacts. Are you interested to see your research make real change and to make cities more sustainable? Then you should take the opportunity and participate in the coming AIMday to be able to discuss questions within your research area. Your ticket to AIMday® is to register for at least one question and participation is free of charge. Registration closes at April 10th.
