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.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
