GISMA Student Wins IFLA Competition

14.01.2010
Vishwanathan Iyer, student of the full-time MBA program at GISMA Business School, is one of the 6 winners of the INFOCOM Future Leadership Awards (IFLA) 2010.

IFLA, under the aegis of the main event (INFOCOM conference & exhibition), is an endeavor to identify and groom the young global leaders of the future. It is India's most prestigious open paper writing competition for management students across the globe, where papers are invited from first and final year students from selected Business Schools across the world.

The six best entries are selected by a distinguished jury. All top six winners will be asked to present their papers on "Innovation in a downturn" at the INFOCOM 09-10 Conference in Calcutta on January 21 this year.

The theme "Innovation in a downturn" focused on innovative strategies and ideas that would lead the way forward and create the innovation upturn for global or tions and economies from the current global crisis.

"This award provides young aspiring business students like me an opportunity to present our work to a variety of business leaders, members of the Indian government and the industry in general", explains Iyer this important experience. "Personally, I am thrilled that this endeavor of mine got my alma mater, GISMA Business School, to join the list of distinguished Business Schools such as UC Berkeley, INSEAD, Instituto de Empressa, Stockholm School of Economics and Technical University of Munich, as one of the international winners to have made their mark in this global event over the last decade."

All participants had 8 weeks to write their paper. The research process was intriguing, the 27-years-old electrical engineer remembers, "given the fact that there is a vast amount of research being done on approaches to innovation during recessions, right from the great depression in the 1930s to the dotcom crash of the 2000s."

Information about INFOCOM:

INFOCOM is the annual Information and Communication Technology (ICT) conference and exhibition, initiated in 2002 under the banner of Business world, from the house of ABP Pvt Ltd. Over the last seven episodes of the event, it has emerged to be one of the largest platforms in the country where the IT experts of the corporate world interact with business users and policy makers with an objective to empower businesses with IT for greater advantage. This exhibition is also the largest congregation of ICT professionals, buyers-sellers, corporate leaders, academicians, visionaries, and policymakers in India. Business World, coming from the house of ABP Pvt. Limited (one of India's oldest and biggest media conglomerate) is the fastest growing, largest-selling and most-read business magazine in India.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
