Dear Members of NCP,
Some time ago you have received notification of the NCP events that will take place in Luxembourg from Monday 4 February till Wednesday 6 February 2013. Please find herewith more details on these events:
The NCP Winter meeting (4 and 5 February) is internal to NCP. The programme is appended (Appendix 1). There will be an informal get together on Sunday 3 Feb evening to meet among ourselves and with some Luxembourgers that will participate. Favourable hotel rates have been negotiated. Lunches and dinners are free.
Themes for the Winter Meeting are the (1) NCP Projects and how they develop (RES, ACSI, HKM, ..); (2) Updating IC methodologies for Nations and for Firms and Organizations); (3) IC of ultra-Peripheral regions; How to reconcile Tradition and Modernism.
To nourish our discussions on re-energizing society, involve remote regions and allying tradition and modernism we invited Prof. Matthews Hamabata (Kohala Center, Hawaii) as a guest (www.kohalacenter.org). He was instrumental in the revival effort of Big Island in Hawai’i.
We would be very pleased if you could participate to the meeting and bring your much valued insights to the discussions.
LuxIC, our Luxembourgish Intellectual Capital Association, further organizes the following day (Wednesday 6th Feb from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m) a conference on “The Future of Luxembourg” where NCP members will make up one of the two panels. We believe that there is an opportunity to design together a model for helping Luxembourg (and regions/countries in general) find the mental resources to re-invent themselves. One of the 4 presentations is based on IC. (App. 2 and App. 3)
The conference is open, free, but you will need to register (App.4 in PDF format / App.4 in DOC format).
Luxembourg is a small town, but rich of history and worth a visit (www.lcto.lu) .
The NCP events will all take place in the center of town (www.cerclecite.lu) (Place d’Armes).
The proposed hotels (App.5 in PDF format / App.5 in DOC format) are in walking distance, with striking views over one of the valleys.
With the hope we can count on your presence in Luxembourg, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Prof DI Guenter Koch, Secr Gen NCP
Jean-Jacques Mertens, President, LuxIC

Dear participants in the IC Accounting workshop in Heidelberg, having taken place on Sept. 18th,
Once again a great thanks to the organizers and enablers of the events in Heidelberg – Johannes Glueckler and his team – as well as especially to those who contributed to the workshop on invitation of Ahmed Bounfour and myself on behalf of The New Club f Paris.
Ahmed and further core members of the NCP will come back on you with some suggestions on how to proceed in the future. My suggestion is that we shall discuss such further steps once the ppt-presentations haven distributed ad can serve as a basis for designing actions on how to get the NCP stronger involved in the IC Accounting movements now popping up in different places.

Dear NCP member,
As suggested by our Luxembourg members during our last winter workshop in Tenerife and as confirmed in the General Assembly in May 2012, the next NCP winter workshop is taking place in Luxembourg from February 4th – February 5th 2013, followed by a half day conference on the the 6th of February 2013 with invited Luxembourg decision makers under the patronage of the Observatory of Competitiveness of the MInistry of the Economy and Foreign Trade on the ‘Futures of Luxembourg’ in the light of Intellectual Capital. And we will, of course, have a get together on Sunday 3rd of February in the evening.
The Luxembourg team in agreement with NCP’s Board is working on a more detailed program for the workshop and for the conference. They will also provide hotel suggestions at negociated rates. We will send out these information in the course of October 2012.
So please save these dates in your agenda:
NCP Winter Workshop in Luxembourg, Feb 4th – Feb 6th 2013.
We would also like you to indicate us as soon as possible if you intend to join this event or not by responding to this post.
On behalf of Jean-Jacques Mertens and Sylvain Cottong, the local masters and organisers of this event in Luxembourg
with best regards
General Secretary of NCP
Dear friends and colleagues,
Although the planning and preparation period is quite short, I would like to ask you to reserve Sep. 18th, 2012 in your diary for a one day seminar + workshop (morning to evening) arranged by The New Club of Paris (NCP – www.new-club-of-paris.org ) in Heidelberg (University) on the subject of “Next Generation IC Accounting & Reporting” (working title; i.e. subject also is “economic quantification of knowledge”).
[This meeting will follow a one day conference which is held on the day before (17.9.) by the NCP also at Heidelberg University, the subject of which is a future French – German Round Table Report on IC economy, which is an event on invitation].
You will be addressed short term on details, such as location and program; you may be even invited for an active contribution based on the background of your competences in the subject. The meeting will be chaired by NCP’s Vice President Ahmed Bounfour, who will set the program. The purpose in outcome shall be:
a) to identify the state in international IC accounting and reporting, in specific convergencies towards standards
b) to identify “deficiencies” and necessary complementarities in IC accounting and reporting, as subject for research and development trough those attending.
c) to identify needs for active engagements in international projects on this subject from the part of the NCP
d) planning of follow-up actions.
Please, also get your competent colleagues and partners being interested in the subject or who even have the competence to contribute actively, informed so that they prepare for attending the event as well, since this preannouncement is only sent to a selected group, mainly in Germany, so far.
You may also go for a preannouncement via your web page and/or social media thus raising interest within your community.

Dear members of The New Club of Paris,
As already announced on April 22nd , the 2012 General Assembly of the NCP will take place on May 30th from late afternoon until the evening.
Different from the last announcement, the Club will NOT have its General Assembly meeting in Musee Rodin, rather than at
Les Salons de la Maison des Arts et Metiers / Club d’Iéna
9 bis, Avenue d’Iéna
75116 PARIS (16th Arrondissement)
This location is near to the conference facility of World Bank Institute, where IC 8 will take place on May 31st ad June 1st.
Different from the past years, we will have a “splitted” Assembly. I.e. we will have a two-hour workshop which is informal but related to General Assembly topics, thus after this workshop the formal GA will follow, fulfilling the statuary procedures.
The schedule will be
17:00 = 5.00 p.m. Start of informal part of the GA in terms of informal presentations
19:15 = 7:15 p.m. Start of the formal, i.e. official General Assembly with voting on decisions.
20:30 = 8:30 p.m. Start of dinner (at same location)
The detailed agenda for both parts are attached. The formal Assembly needs to fulfill prescribed statuary conditions, whereas the informal part preceding the formal GA is open for inputs to be discussed and explained.
So, please, return your answers regarding this mail to both Mrs. Lao – firstname.lastname@example.org – and to me, indicating if…
a) you will take part in the GA (1) in both parts or (2) only in the official part
b) in case of attending the informal part: if, in addition to the agenda prepared, you would like to contribute and, if yes, on which subject.
c) you will take part in the subsequent dinner from 20:30 (8:30p.m.) at the same location. This information is also important for our planning.

The First Workshop: Paris, Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry, 26 September 2011
The Main Discussed Issues
The Franco-German Round Table on intangibles and knowledge assets is a research and policy initiative by two major universities in the two countries (as well in Europe) –The University Paris-Sud and Heidelberg University– who decided to join their recent and on-going research efforts, in order to:
- Come up with conceptual instruments;
- Provide a stimulating platform for research and action for progress among different stakeholders in France and Germany;
- Contribute, more generally, to the large dialogue in Europe and more globally, on the role of intangibles in value creation.
The Round table will bring together researchers, policy makers, Executives and Media from the two countries, who are interested in sharing experiences and coordinating efforts towards understanding the dynamics of intangibles and their impact on sustainability in European societies, and beyond.
The project will deal with strategic business issues as well as with meso and macro/societal issues, taking into account the importance of linking these different perspectives. Societal issues such as sustainability will be integrated into the analysis.
