Outlook on the BRIC’s Economy

06.06.2011
Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe (IAMO) hosts IAMO Forum 2011 from 23-24 June 2011 | Focus: Economic developments in Brazil, Russia, India, China and their repercussions on the world economy

Due to their high growth rates, Brazil, Russia, India and China were considered the economic high-flyers of the past decade. Thus, Goldman Sachs’ Head Economist Jim O’Neill coined the acronym BRIC to refer to these countries as an entity. Research in the areas of economics and agricultural economics dealing with growth in the BRICs and their trade relations will be the main focus of IAMO Forum 2011. This scientific conference entitled “Will the BRIC’s Decade Continue? Prospects for Trade and Growth“ will take place June 23-24, 2011 in Halle (Saale), Germany.

Participants are to expect a multifaceted program. The highlights include two plenary sessions on “Growth and Development in the BRICs” and “Food Security and Sustainable Development” with a broad range of internationally renowned keynote speakers. Scott Rozelle, Stanford University, will give a speech on “Growth without Equity in Human Capial: Will China Run into a Middle Income Trap?”. Rozelle’s research focuses on China and is concerned with agricultural policy, the emergence and evolution of markets as well as poverty and inequality; he has received numerous honors and awards in recognition of his outstanding achievements. A look ahead is subject of Arvind Panagariya’s presentation “India in the Global Economy: The Next 15 Years”. Panagariya is Professor at Columbia University and a sought-after specialist concerning the development of the Indian economy. Klaus-Dieter Schumacher, Head of the Economics, Public Affairs and Corporate Communications Division at Nordzucker AG, is a recognized expert for agricultural commodity markets and will give talks on “Instabilitiy and Volatility on Agricultural Markets”. Further keynotes will be given by Francisco Ferreira, Deputy Chief Economist for Latin America and the Caribbean at the World Bank, Heike Harmgart, Principal Economist and Head of the Food Security Initiative at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, David Orden, Senior Research Rellow at IFPRI (International Food Policy Research Institute), and Andrei Yakovlev, Vice Rector of the Higher School of Economics in Moscow.

Furthermore, a special session on Africa and Africa’s relationship to the BRICs is planned. It was organized by Awudu Abdulai, Professor for Agricultural and Food Economics at Kiel University. Another prominent guest will Jörg Hacker, President of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, who will open the conference’s welcome reception with a lecture.

Since 2003, IAMO Forum is annually organized by Leibniz Institut of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe (IAMO). This year, it is held for the first time in cooperation with two other institutions, GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies and Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW). The conference aims to present and discuss up-to-date research findings together with renowned scholars, policy makers and industry representatives. At the same time, talented young academics are given the opportunity to present their work and to link in the global scientific community.

Everyone interested in these topics is invited to join IAMO Forum 2011. Details on the program and conference fees can be found on the homepage http://forum2011.iamo.de.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
