CASiM Conference "The Role of Trust in Business Economics" in Leipzig (Germany) on June 28, 2012

18.01.2012
HHL – Leipzig Graduate School of Management and the Center for Advanced Studies in Management (CASiM) will organize a one-day scientific conference on the topic „The Role of Trust in Business Economics“ on June 28, 2012. The conference will take place in Leipzig (Germany) and will run three panels with talks on the following topics: "Trust and the Theory of the Firm”, “Trust and Markets”, and “Trust in Innovation”.

Trust is one of the crucial foundations for the successful exchange and interplay of economic actors. Trust has a great influence on the intra-firm and inter-firm interaction of employees, management, customers and financiers, and hence on the efficiency and prosperity of the national economy.

In spite of the necessity of economic rules, regulations, compliance and contracts within firms, on the market and in the national economy, there can be no doubt that true efficiency and sustainability require trust. Our current economic and financial crisis demonstrates clearly how important trust is and which problems arise on the market and in the national economy if trust is violated or even lost.

We believe that trust has not been adequately discussed in the economic sciences and that the trust research in other scientific disciplines has not been sufficiently incorporated into economics. To remedy this problem, HHL – Leipzig Graduate School of Management and the Center for Advanced Studies in Management (CASiM) will organize a one-day scientific conference on the topic „The Role of Trust in Business Economics“ on June 28, 2012.

The conference will take place in Leipzig (Germany) and will run three panels with talks on the following topics:
Panel 1: “Trust and the Theory of the Firm”
Panel 2: “Trust and Markets”
Panel 3: “Trust in Innovation”.

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
