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

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.
The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...
Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
