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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
