13 -14 April 2012: World Negotiation Championship first time in Paris

27.03.2012
The Negotiation Challenge (TNC) reports record in the number of applications +++ 18 top-class Business and Law Schools fight for the world championship in negotiation

“Students need to learn to participate fully in 21st century societies by learning skills that may not be commonly taught in classrooms such as critical thinking, creativity, teamwork, problem solving and negotiation. These generic skills should be learned in schools and in institutions of higher education. Negotiation skills are based on these aforementioned competencies and are needed in many professional domains today.” (Prof. Dr. Barbara Ischinger, OECD Director for Education)

Prof. Dr. Ischinger highlights the importance of negotiation skills both in business and in society. The OECD Director for Education will deliver a speech during the opening ceremony on 13 April 2012 in Paris.

With more than 75 teams from top business and law schools from all over the world, the number of applicants more than doubled compared to last years. The 18 teams that have been selected are from such renowned business and law schools like Harvard University, London School of Business and Finance, UC Hastings College of the Law, ESSEC or ESCP Europe. Each team consists of three students and one coach. From 13 – 14 April, the teams compete against each other at such diverse venues as the International Chamber of Commerce, IESEG School of Management or Parisian Street Cafés. The two best teams of the first four rounds will be in the final round. This year is the first time where the French Business School IESEG School of Management co-organizes the event together with the German HHL - Graduate School of Management.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
