The purpose of the 6-day course is to offer the most advanced insight on Robotics and AI regulation to law students, lawyers, practitioners, engineers, investors, entrepreneurs, business-people interested either in bringing R&AI products onto the market or in making use of R&AI solutions or industrial processes in their businesses, with a focus on Industry 4.0 themes.

The course, at its second edition, aims at providing its students with a broad understanding of all implications of robotics that are going to be increasingly relevant in the legal, political and social debate over the coming years.

According to a study carried out by McKinsey, robotics and artificial intelligence (R&AI) may have an impact on the market greater than 4.5 trillion per year by 2025. Developing a leading industry in this field, therefore, is strategic: all the world’s largest economies are heavily investing in its research.

At the same time new technologies as biorobotics (bionic limbs, exoskeletons, brain machine interfaces) are going to deeply challenge our understanding of human life and human limits; others, as expert systems and AI, promise to reshape the labor market. Every aspect of our societies is going to be involved and changed: mere technological research is not sufficient to drive new technologies toward a human oriented progress.

Social scientists – lawyers, political scientists, economists – as well as engineers researching these technologies need to get together, addressing the relevant issues raised by new technologies. In order to do so, they need to acquire a new and open interdisciplinary approach involving law, economics, engineering and ethics together.

Teaching essential AI and Robotics Regulation to help you bring innovations and products to the market

Help you identify what to watch out for when designing and adopting new technologies in production processes.

NO previous legal knowledge required.

The Course is structured into lectures and case-studies; the interdisciplinary approach is one of the main features of the course.

The classes will address the following topics:

-          Current Issues on EU law on R&AI

-          Current trends in AI and robotics

-          IP law

-          Technology Trends

-          Technology assessment

-          Data protection

-          Standards and product safety     

-          Product liability (civil and criminal)     

A detailed program will be available at the following link:


The most relevant issues arising from either newly adopted regulations at EU and Member States level will be discussed, providing detailed and practical guidance on how that could impact businesses (e.g. GDPR on privacy-by-design, legislation on driverless vehicles and other technologies, reforms to the machine directive and other legislations currently under consideration at EU level applicable to Robotics&AI.

The teaching body includes a broad range of professors of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on the Regulation of Robotics and AI, coming from various fields such as law, engineering, philosophy, social robotics, management and innovation, providing an extremely interdisciplinary perspective. Most of the professors have actively participated in the Jean Monnet Module “Europe Regulates Robotics” and the previous RoboLaw project, funded by the European Commission (FP7), which developed the “Guidelines on Regulating Robotics” presented to the European Parliament and Commission in September 2014.


At the end of the Course the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies will issue a certificate of attendance to participants who attended at least 90% of the entire training and passed the final learning assessment tests.
