Canada has world-leading capabilities in a number of different technology areas that are disrupting business, including AI, nanotechnology and quantum computing. Canadian companies are taking advantage of the opportunities that these innovations represent. Given the observed gap and the pace of change in the information available regarding disruptive technologies, Norton Rose Fulbright has launched a MicroCert in Disruptive Technologies.
The NRF MicroCert program aims to introduce participants to key technologies shaping business as well as the legal, regulatory and risk issues related to their deployment and can be accessed through the NRF Institute. The program is available at no cost to clients and key contacts of the firm and is designed to equip participants with practical disruptive technology legal skills.
To obtain a MicroCert in Disruptive Technologies, participants must complete five core modules and five elective modules. The five core modules cover: artificial intelligence (AI); blockchain /distributed ledger technology (DLT); autonomous vehicles; data; and the Internet of Things (IoT). The 13 available elective modules delve into industry-specific topics including cryptocurrencies, InfraTech, payments, and digital health. Each module consists of a 30-minute on-demand webinar led by the firm’s lawyers from across all regions, followed by a multiple choice assessment.
Register to participate in the MicroCertificate in Disruptive Technologies today through The Institute. For faster access, please register with your company email address.
