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.

The Center for Corporate Governance (CCG) at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management was founded in April 2010. The research work focuses, among other things, on the topics of corporate governance and company performance, governance ratings, diversity and corporate governance in emerging economies. The institution is led by a team of Academic Directors with Univ.-Prof. Dr. Marc Steffen Rapp (Philipps-Universität Marburg), Prof. Christian Strenger and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Michael Wolff (University of Göttingen). The CCG cooperates with numerous governance units from international universities and the Global Governance Knowledge Group of IFC/World Bank. http://www.hhl.de/ccg

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
