Cursusdoelen
  1. Understanding the main regulatory strategies and instruments concerning enhancement of technological innovation, particularly regarding the development and use of robots and drones.
  2. Capacity to critically reflect on existing regulatory strategies as under 1.
  3. Ability to construct a regulatory design approach to dealing with legal/regulatory aspects of new developments in and uses of robotics and drones instruments.
Inhoud
This course is about how regulation, especially regulatory strategies and legal regimes, can foster (design, experimentation and implementation of) technological innovation, particularly in the field of robotics & drone development and use – while not ignoring possible risks.
The iterative relationship between technology development and regulatory development will be key to the course. Specific topics will be:
- the design of legal/regulatory regimes for experimenting with new robotics/drone developments and uses (such as in sequentially upscaling)
- the design of ‘future proof regulation’, that allows more liberties to innovation in robotics & drones (such as a go-ahead without ex ante permissions and the use of private regulation).
- possibilities for ‘designing-in’ regulation or techno-regulation.
- possibilities for developing a tool to link robotics/drones impact assessment to regulatory impact assessment.
- robots & drones regulating humans and other robots & drones.

As follows from the title of the course, regulation of drones will, as subcategory of robotics, be explicitly addressed. Still, where relevant and possible, regulation of other categories of robotics, such as automated vehicles and care-robots will also be included in the discussion.
