AIM for Future Science. AIM for disruption. AIM for Industry 5.0

Imagine a world where disaster rescue robots can autonomously change their body size and shape to adapt to different terrains; where the manufactured chemicals previously distributed from centralised plants can be made as required and to precise chemical formulation (in accordance with real-time data collected by drones) in mobile manufacturing plants at point of use; or where previously wasted or lost food has re-entered the value chain as exciting, novel and in-demand food products...

Join us in February 2017 to learn about these scientific breakthroughs and more. Hear how the AIM Future Science Platform is undertaking the research that will see these futures become a reality.
