13 -14 April 2012: World Negotiation Championship first time in Paris

27.03.2012
The Negotiation Challenge (TNC) reports record in the number of applications +++ 18 top-class Business and Law Schools fight for the world championship in negotiation

“Students need to learn to participate fully in 21st century societies by learning skills that may not be commonly taught in classrooms such as critical thinking, creativity, teamwork, problem solving and negotiation. These generic skills should be learned in schools and in institutions of higher education. Negotiation skills are based on these aforementioned competencies and are needed in many professional domains today.” (Prof. Dr. Barbara Ischinger, OECD Director for Education)

Prof. Dr. Ischinger highlights the importance of negotiation skills both in business and in society. The OECD Director for Education will deliver a speech during the opening ceremony on 13 April 2012 in Paris.

With more than 75 teams from top business and law schools from all over the world, the number of applicants more than doubled compared to last years. The 18 teams that have been selected are from such renowned business and law schools like Harvard University, London School of Business and Finance, UC Hastings College of the Law, ESSEC or ESCP Europe. Each team consists of three students and one coach. From 13 – 14 April, the teams compete against each other at such diverse venues as the International Chamber of Commerce, IESEG School of Management or Parisian Street Cafés. The two best teams of the first four rounds will be in the final round. This year is the first time where the French Business School IESEG School of Management co-organizes the event together with the German HHL - Graduate School of Management.

About the Negotiation Challenge (TNC)

The Negotiation Challenge (TNC) has been founded by PhD students of HHL and Harvard Law School during a joint project in 2007. At an early time, HHL has realized the importance of the subject negotiation. With TNC, HHL and IESEG are precursors in the European region in the field of negotiation.

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...
