Conferences "Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets" in Leipzig/Germany on September 24-26, 2015


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.

HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management is a university-level institution and ranks amongst the leading international business schools. The goal of the oldest business school in German-speaking Europe is to educate effective, responsible and entrepreneurially-minded leaders. HHL stands out for its excellent teaching, its clear research focus, its effective knowledge transfer into practice as well as its outstanding student services. HHL is accredited by AACSB International.

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...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
