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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
