02.05.2012
- Award ceremony part of the 5th ESMT Annual Forum on June 13-15, 2012
- Italian Prime Minister third recipient of award for outstanding responsible leadership
ESMT European School of Management and Technology has announced that the 2012 ESMT Responsible Leadership Award will be conferred upon Mario Monti, Prime Minister of Italy. The awards ceremony will take place on June 13, 2012 as a part of the 5th ESMT Annual Forum. The international business school will present the ESMT Responsible Leadership Award for the third time this year.

Past honorees include the co-founder and chief mentor of Infosys Technologies N.R. Narayana Murthy and Güler Sabancý, Chairman and Managing Director of Turkey’s Sabancý Holding.

“I am particularly proud to receive this award from ESMT, which since its founding has made the teaching the principles of responsible leadership to future business leaders an integral part of its mission,” said Mario Monti.

Jörg Rocholl, ESMT President, said, “Mario Monti is an outstandingly gifted and dedicated individual who has taken on great responsibility in difficult times. It is a particularly great honor for us to acknowledge his achievements by means of this award.”

Before becoming Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Finance of Italy in November 2011, Mario Monti was President of the prestigious Bocconi University in Milan. He holds a doctorate in economics and was a member of the European Commission for almost ten years, first as Commissioner for Internal Market, Financial Services and Financial Integration Customs, and Taxation (1995-1999), and then for Competition (1999-2004). Mario Monti also served on the first ESMT Academic Board.

The 5th ESMT Annual Forum, held in cooperation with the International Leadership Association (ILA), will take place in Berlin June 13-15, 2012. The Annual Forum provides a platform for international opinion leaders from business, academia, and politics to debate issues concerning “Leading Across Generations”. The focus of this year's conference is on future workforce challenges and opportunities. CEOs of leading global companies and renowned academics will discuss topics such as workplace structures, mentoring and coaching, retention and motivation, and lifelong learning in a total of 18 sessions.

Key speakers at this year’s Annual Forum include Michael Diekmann (Allianz SE), Thomas Sattelberger (Deutsche Telekom AG) as well as Charles O'Reilly (Stanford Graduate School of Business) and Matthew Bothner (ESMT). Two panels will focus on “The Executive Perspective on Leading Organizations with a Multigenerational Workforce” and “Instilling Sustainability Practices in Multigenerational Leaders”.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
