Empower yourself to explore various trends and implications of key disruptive technologies and build resilience in your organization.
In Partnership with:
2, 9 & 10 November 2023
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.
Developed by the faculty of Nova School of Science and Technology, this program focuses on exploring the intersection of innovation, technology, and business.
This program is focused on teaching you the critical disruptive technology trends that are driving the world. It is ideally designed to help you examine the particular areas of emerging technologies, such as IoE, AI, Robotics, Quantum Computing, Blockchain, 3D printing, Green Chemistry, Engineering biology among many others and the tools of tech-driven future. The curriculum is organised with live sessions from experienced faculty members, scientists, and visits to some of the most awarded and recognised laboratories of science in Portuguese scientific community to provide you a real learning experience.
The course will be useful to:
For individuals who are in leadership roles looking to keep their organization ahead of the curve through tech innovations, or who are on career tracks to take on technology leadership roles, including:
This executive program can help you keep your organization ahead of the curve via tech innovations. Enrolling in this program will enable you to learn how to drive strategic change across your organization. You’ll learn how to acquire data, tools, and techniques to drive change and leverage technology across your organization. Once you accomplish the I-Tech Safari program, you’ll be able to lead your organization towards success with tech innovations.
