Covid-19 has altered the way people interact and conduct business and has led to potential opportunities for disruptive technologies.
In Partnership with:
On Campus and Labs
At NOVA School of Science and Technology we believe that we’re privileged to be living in a time where science and technology can assist us, make our lives easier and rethink the ways we go about our daily lives, and move forward.
Many of the technologies that will disrupt industry and services tomorrow are being carved today in research and development labs. The pace of technology development and adoption by companies is bigger than ever in all economic domains, from agriculture to finance, from healthcare to manufacturing. Executives must create awareness on these technologies and understand its potential impact on their business, from being game changers and enable ‘creative destruction’ to simple order of magnitude gains in efficiency.
During 3 unforgettable days you will have the opportunity to listen, speak and discuss with the most notable scientists and researchers that are leading some of the new and inspiring tech revolutions that are changing the world, visit their laboratories, and uncover what technologies have the most potential to impact your business, and recognise the role of technology to tackle the world’s toughest challenges.
This program is designed for individual business executives and teams in mid to senior-level management.
Ideal participants include: C-level managers, executives in business development, marketing, sales, operations, customer service, HR, legal and finance.
For maximum impact, and where possible, we recommend groups colleagues from same company, so examples and applications can be more customised.
The goal is for executives to gain a deeper understanding of the latest innovative technologies and how they can disrupt future industry and services, assimilating a functional understanding of technology rather than technical expertise.
