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

13.06.2013
- 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.”

About ESMT
ESMT European School of Management and Technology was founded in October 2002 by 25 leading global companies and institutions. The international business school offers a full-time MBA, an executive MBA, and open enrollment and customized executive education programs. ESMT focuses on three main topics: leadership and social responsibility, European competitiveness, and the management of technology. Additionally the business school provides an interdisciplinary platform for discourse between politics, business, and academia. ESMT is based in Berlin, Germany, with an additional campus in Schloss Gracht near Cologne, where USW Netzwerk runs the German-speaking executive education programs of the business school. ESMT is a private business school, accredited by the German state, AACSB, AMBA, and FIBAA. http://www.esmt.org

Im Focus: First-of-its-kind chemical oscillator offers new level of molecular control

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.

Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
