NIT is launching from September 2015 a new series of events entitled NIT Impact Sessions. Under the heading “Success 4.0 – Is Your Company Fit for the Future?” experts with practical expertise will provide an outlook into tomorrow’s digitalized working world. In small groups business leaders will learn which digital trends are worth taking up.
Management and organizational processes are changing rapidly. Generation Y, digitalization, Industry 4.0, and demographic change are exerting a fundamental influence on corporate cultures. They are totally transforming the classic understanding of work and, with it, that of leadership. Many business executives face the question of how they are to master these global challenges and to run their companies successfully.
NIT Impact Sessions prepare business leaders and junior executives for the future. At compact, two-day events they receive relevant input from competent teachers. The special feature is that attendees work out during the session how their company is to position itself in the future in the subject area under discussion. They will benefit in the process from the expertise, experience, and viewpoints of other participants from different industries and, of course, of the experts.
NIT Impact Sessions at at Glance:
Industry 4.0 as a Driver of New Business Ideas, 22/23.09.2015
Industry 4.0 offers manufacturing enterprises in particular numerous opportunities to establish themselves in new business areas. In one-on-one coaching IT and strategy consultant Ralf Schulze deals with the individual circumstances of attendees and identifies business opportunities.
Ideapreneurship and Flatly Hierarchic Organizational Structures, 13/14.10.2015
Swift access to information and sharing in networks characterize the thought patterns of Generation Y. A management rethink is required to harness this potential for innovation. Christopher Mars, an expert in change management, shows why speed and flat hierarchies – and not size – will determine sustainability.
Leadership 4.0: The Psycho-logic of Industrie 4.0, 22/23.10.2015
Industry 4.0 will require of organizations an adaptability and resource efficiency that can no longer be controlled centrally and from the top down. Psychologist Tobias Möller-Hahlbrock assists well-known companies with personnel and executive development. He reveals how management must change and how the change of corporate culture is to succeed.
Disruption, Emergence & Talent – Agenda Setting for the Future, 29/30.10.2015
Industry is in the throes of change and the consequences are hitting companies head-on and in all areas. As an innovation manager Peter Pirklbauer is familiar with the far-reaching repercussions of both emergent and disruptive technologies. An expert, he knows which technology trends are worth pursuing.
Mastering the Challenges of Agile Development, 10/11.11.2015
In the course of digitalization the days of static and inert project and product development methods such as the waterfall model are over. Their place is being taken by agile, flexible, and highly communicative methods. IT expert Tobias Berger teaches methods of agile and effective planning and design and development of new products and individual components.
IT Security – Awareness and Methods of Protection from Digital Threats, 24/25.11.2015
Threats to the security of information and IT systems are on the increase. The growth of networking presents hackers with scope for attack. IT consultant Tobias Berger draws attention to the threats and identifies with attendees the digital threats their companies face and how they can protect themselves from them.
All events will be held in German.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
