The First Online Workshop on Disruptive Technologies

Highly Recommended for:

Professionals, Entrepreneurs, Managers, Students, and whoever wants to become a future market leader.

Technological changes will impact all industries soon; it is only a matter of time.


The Disruptive Workshop is a 3-HOUR ONLINE EVENT that will take you into the world of disruptive technologies.

During the workshop, you will figure out the future scenarios that the impact of disruptive technologies will open in the next years.
Sharing information, ideas, and reflections in the various areas of knowledge in a form as close as possible to brainstorming are the main elements of the event.

Technological acceleration is setting new standards and new patterns. With a simple and understandable language, the disruptive workshop aims to spread the knowledge of the innovations that will soon condition an ever-changing world.

It will be a fascinating but also beneficial journey, which will give you access to topics and information (and new points of view) that are not usually covered.The workshop will allow you to look to the future less uncertainly and to make more conscious decisions.

“We cannot know what the impact of disruptive innovations will be on the world as we know it. What we can do is try to identify and analyze emerging trends and technologies that have the potential to produce a major change in economic and social systems

First Block


What is disruptive technology?

All disruptive technologies have some characteristics in common that hold their potential. You will find out how to recognize them and how they impact existing systems.

The timing of the change: the disruption curve

As human beings, we identify change as something sudden. But the change curve rises slowly and takes a long time to reach its peak. Understanding this process will allow you to gain a competitive edge.

Shaping the future: convergence between technologies

The future will not be defined by a predominant technology. You will discover the incredible scenarios that the convergence of technologies could open in the coming years



Neural Links

Competing with the most advanced forms of artificial intelligence, enhancing memory and processing capacity of the human brain, creating digital copies of ourselves, creating a network of connections between humans and machines…

Immersive Experience

An overview of the most innovative companies, start-ups, and products in the field of virtual and augmented reality, and immersive experience that will open our eyes to the possible scenarios of the future.

Quantum Computer

Quantum computing exploits the properties of quantum physics, making computers “think” in a different, non-linear way. Calculations that today take years will be done in a few moments.

Genetic Engineering

In the past few years, scientists have revolutionized our ability to rewrite the genetic code to eliminate diseases or give creatures whole new traits. Today, it is possible to modify the genome of any living being with surprising ease.

AI & Deep Learning

How does a computer recognize a face? How far can this capacity of machines be pushed? What today seems obvious to us was simply unthinkable until a few decades ago.

Space Colonization

The process leading to the human colonization of space has already started. Soon, human stationing will be operating on the Moon and Mars. There is a turning point in human history and the start of new forms of economy and business potential.
