- 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: 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...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
