Conference theme: Energy Storage and Transportation / Students from all over Germany are welcome to apply by April 8, 2014 / http://www.hhl-energyconference.com
Energy Storage and Transportation will be the focus of the HHL Energy Conference at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management. This year’s Energy Conference will take place on May 22 and 23, 2014 under the auspices of Sigmar Gabriel (SPD), the Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy.
This is a unique conference where selected students and representatives from different companies have the chance to discuss current developments in the energy sector. The program includes a case study competition, panel discussions, expert presentations and networking events. Accommodation and catering will be provided for the participants.
A team of five students who voluntarily work in the HHL Energy Club are organizing the HHL Energy Conference. “The participants will enjoy two exciting days with renowned representatives from business, government and research sectors as well as students from all over Germany,” Luisa Wasilewski, M.Sc.-student and vice-president of the HHL Energy Conference, says.
Students can apply to participate in the conference until April 8, 2014 by sending an appealing CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sponsors of the HHL Energy Conference 2014 include Siemens Management Consulting, MIBRAG, CTG Consulting, E.ON, Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, and BearingPoint. http://www.hhl-energyconference.com
Main focus: Energy Storage and Transportation
Students from the oldest private business school in German-speaking Europe have chosen the subject of this year‘s HHL Energy Conference well. Energy storage and transportation are currently core issues of the respective sector. The expansion of renewable energy in Germany leads to a strong fluctuation in supply while seeing a consistently high demand. An intermediary solution are storage systems that store electricity in times of excess supply and feed electricity back into the grid in times of supply shortfall. The topic concerns not only representatives from the energy sector but from government and society as well. The HHL Energy Conference will focus on those areas and discuss possible questions, problems and solutions.
HHL Energy Club organizes the HHL Energy Conference
The organizers of the HHL Energy Conference are students from the MBA and M.Sc. Programs at HHL who by founding the HHL Energy Club have brought into being a unique initiative in Germany. Only a few international graduate schools (e.g. Harvard, Wharton, MIT or INSEAD) have similarly established Energy Clubs that were often founded by the students themselves, working together with regional and trans-regional companies.
The activities of the Energy Club student initiative at HHL aspire to be amongst the leading clubs to include discussions with industry experts, excursions to different energy companies and institutions as well as organizing the HHL Energy Conference. The energy sector that is also being represented in a Cluster operating in and around Leipzig, offers numerous opportunities for startups and interesting career prospects. Thus, establishing the HHL Energy Club indirectly provides impulses for regional development which is especially important in view of Leipzig’s aspiration in becoming one of the outstanding energy centers in Europe.

Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.
Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...

On Tuesday, 19 May 2015 the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its home port in Bremerhaven, setting a course for the Arctic. Led by Dr Ilka Peeken from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) a team of 53 researchers from 11 countries will investigate the effects of climate change in the Arctic, from the surface ice floes down to the seafloor.
RV Polarstern will enter the sea-ice zone north of Spitsbergen. Covering two shallow regions on their way to deeper waters, the scientists on board will focus...
Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego developed a gel filled with toxin-absorbing nanosponges that could lead to an effective treatment for skin and wound infections caused by MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), an antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This "nanosponge-hydrogel" minimized the growth of skin lesions on mice infected with MRSA - without the use of antibiotics. The researchers recently published their findings online in Advanced Materials.
To make the nanosponge-hydrogel, the team mixed nanosponges, which are nanoparticles that absorb dangerous toxins produced by MRSA, E. coli and other...
