- Award ceremony part of the 5th ESMT Annual Forum on June 13-15, 2012
- Italian Prime Minister third recipient of award for outstanding responsible leadership
ESMT European School of Management and Technology has announced that the 2012 ESMT Responsible Leadership Award will be conferred upon Mario Monti, Prime Minister of Italy. The awards ceremony will take place on June 13, 2012 as a part of the 5th ESMT Annual Forum. The international business school will present the ESMT Responsible Leadership Award for the third time this year.

Past honorees include the co-founder and chief mentor of Infosys Technologies N.R. Narayana Murthy and Güler Sabancý, Chairman and Managing Director of Turkey’s Sabancý Holding.

“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.

Jörg Rocholl, ESMT President, said, “Mario Monti is an outstandingly gifted and dedicated individual who has taken on great responsibility in difficult times. It is a particularly great honor for us to acknowledge his achievements by means of this award.”

Before becoming Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Finance of Italy in November 2011, Mario Monti was President of the prestigious Bocconi University in Milan. He holds a doctorate in economics and was a member of the European Commission for almost ten years, first as Commissioner for Internal Market, Financial Services and Financial Integration Customs, and Taxation (1995-1999), and then for Competition (1999-2004). Mario Monti also served on the first ESMT Academic Board.

The 5th ESMT Annual Forum, held in cooperation with the International Leadership Association (ILA), will take place in Berlin June 13-15, 2012. The Annual Forum provides a platform for international opinion leaders from business, academia, and politics to debate issues concerning “Leading Across Generations”. The focus of this year's conference is on future workforce challenges and opportunities. CEOs of leading global companies and renowned academics will discuss topics such as workplace structures, mentoring and coaching, retention and motivation, and lifelong learning in a total of 18 sessions.

Key speakers at this year’s Annual Forum include Michael Diekmann (Allianz SE), Thomas Sattelberger (Deutsche Telekom AG) as well as Charles O'Reilly (Stanford Graduate School of Business) and Matthew Bothner (ESMT). Two panels will focus on “The Executive Perspective on Leading Organizations with a Multigenerational Workforce” and “Instilling Sustainability Practices in Multigenerational Leaders”.

Im Focus: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
