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

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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
