Fifth ESMT Annual Forum: Leading Across Generations

13.06.2012
- High-level discussion on future challenges in human resources
- Mario Monti receives ESMT Responsible Leadership Award
The 5th ESMT Annual Forum begins today at 2:30 p.m. at ESMT European School of Management and Technology in Berlin. In cooperation with the International Leadership Association (ILA), opinion leaders from business, academia, and politics are coming together to discuss the challenges of "Leading Across Generations”.

At 5:45 p.m. ESMT will honor Mario Monti, President of the Council of Ministers and Minister of Economy and Finance of the Republic of Italy, with the ESMT Responsible Leadership Award. “I am particularly proud to receive this award from ESMT, which since its founding has made the teaching the principles of responsible leadership to future business leaders an integral part of its mission,” said Mario Monti. Wolfgang Schäuble, German Federal Minister of Finance, will hold the laudatory speech. Mario Monti is the third recipient after Co-Founder and Chief Mentor of Infosys Technologies N.R. Narayana Murthy in 2010 and Güler Sabancý, Chairman and Managing Director of Turkey’s Sabancý Holding, in 2011.

At the ESMT Annual Forum June 13-15, ESMT is bringing together experts from around the world to discuss solutions to the challenges of demographic change. Executives of leading global companies and renowned academics will discuss with practical experts in 18 sessions on topics including lifelong learning, workplace structures, mentoring and coaching, and the retention and motivation of employees.

Michael Diekmann, Chairman of the Board of Management, Allianz SE, and Chairman of the ESMT Foundation Board of Trustees, comments, “Neither business nor individuals can cope with the challenges of demographic change alone. Viable solutions can only be developed in conjunction with long-term policy to ensure our competitive position in a globalized world economy.”

Keynote speakers at this year’s ESMT Annual Forum include Michael Diekmann (Allianz SE), Thomas Sattelberger (Deutsche Telekom AG), Michael W. Hodin (Global Coalition on Aging), Charles O'Reilly (Stanford Graduate School of Business) and Matthew Bothner (ESMT). Two main panels focus on the areas of “The Executive Perspective on Leading Organizations with a Multigenerational Workforce” and “Instilling Sustainability Practices in Multigenerational Leaders”. ESMT extends special thanks to Infosys in the context of the 5th Annual Forum. The program is also kindly supported by GAZPROM Germania.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

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...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

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...
