Double taxation still remains one of the biggest obstacles to cross-border trade. The conference will analyse the reasons for the existence of juridical and economic double taxation and the given solutions for the avoidance of double taxation. Special emphasis is put on the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and on legislative proposals which will improve the situation of the taxpayer.
In 2009, the Luxembourg based advisory firm ATOZ funded a new chair for International and European Taxation at the University of Luxembourg. Since February 2010 this chair has been held by Dr. Alexander Rust who previously taught at the prestigious LL.M. programme for International Taxation at New York University. For the conference he invited leading practitioners and academics who have extensively worked and published on the topic of the Avoidance of Double Taxation within the European Union. Mr. Koen Lenaerts, judge at the European Court of Justice, will illustrate the jurisprudence of the ECJ. After each lecture a panel will discuss the proposals made by the speakers. An audience of more than 200 practitioners and academics is expected to attend the conference.
The conference will take place from 9 am to 5.30 pm at the University of Luxembourg on Campus Kirchberg, 6, rue Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, Luxembourg-Kirchberg ( in English). The conference programme can be downloaded on www.uni.lu in the event section.

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...
The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
