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: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
