High-profile speakers from the economy and science will discuss good corporate governance in Africa, Asia and South America
Together with IFC/World Bank, the Center for Corporate Governance at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management will host two conferences on the key aspects and competitive advantages of corporate governance in emerging markets from September 24 to 26, 2015.
The conference will deal with questions of companies and investors from the point of view of the economy and academia. Both events are to deliver well-founded findings for the application of good corporate governance in emerging markets.
The question of effects of responsible conduct and transparent rules on economic success will be a major focus of the two conferences. High-profile experts from Brazil, South Africa and India will give presentations on this topic and discuss with leading investors.
The first conference, which takes place from September 24 to 25, will focus on the possibilities of practical application for enterprises and international investors. Mats Isaksson (Head of Corporate Affairs, OECD), George Dallas (Policy Director of ICGN, London) and Darrin Hartzler (Global Manager, International Finance Corporation) will be among the speakers.
The subsequent 5th International Conference on Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets, an academic conference organized by the Emerging Markets Corporate Governance Research Network, will examine the latest research publications dealing with the development of corporate governance in emerging markets.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
