ESMT Annual Forum: CEOs discuss “The Future of Jobs” with international academics and policymakers

- Challenges of the future working environment
- Mario Draghi receives ESMT Responsible Leadership Award

ESMT European School of Management and Technology in Berlin is holding the ESMT Annual Forum on “The Future of Jobs” today from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. The one-day conference gives opinion leaders from business, academia, and politics a platform to discuss future challenges of employment and the labor market.

As part of the event, Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, will receive the ESMT Responsible Leadership Award at 5:30 p.m. “It is a great honor to receive this award. For the European Central Bank, its price stability mandate was, is, and will continue to be its first priority. Especially in times of challenge such as we are currently experiencing in Europe, it is important to always remain aware of the great responsibility leaders carry for citizens and states,” said Mario Draghi.

Mario Monti, 54th prime minister and senator-for-life of the Republic of Italy, will hold the laudatory speech. Benoît Coeuré, member of the executive board of the European Central Bank, will accept the award on behalf of Mario Draghi. Past recipients include the co-founder and chairman emeritus of Infosys Technologies N.R. Narayana Murthy; Güler Sabancý, chairman and managing director of Turkey’s Sabancý Holding; and Mario Monti.

Keynote speakers at this year's ESMT Annual Forum are Michael Diekmann (Allianz), Maria Åsenius (European Commission), and Daniel Stelter (The Boston Consulting Group). Other panel members include Ramu Damodaran (United Nations), Monika Hamori (IE Business School), Heinrich Hiesinger (ThyssenKrupp), Norbert Sack (Egon Zehnder), Johannes Teyssen (E.ON), Angela Titzrath (Deutsche Post), and Nicolas von Rosty (Siemens).

CEOs of leading global companies, together with renowned academics and policy makers, will debate the impact of migration on future jobs, job creation and growth in Europe, demands placed on managers, and the role of entrepreneurship in businesses and careers.

Jörg Rocholl, president of ESMT, said, “For this year's Annual Forum, we have brought together a variety of top experts to discuss solutions to urgent economic and socially relevant challenges. ESMT will continue to foster this discussion and provide a platform for international exchange in the future.”

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
