    • The Hague Hearing Centre, The Hague

    In 2016, approximately 20 percent of the cases before the ICC International Court of Arbitration were disputes from the construction and engineering sector. Why are there so many construction cases in ICC Arbitration and ADR? What is the nature of these conflicts?

    Contracts in the construction and engineering sector regularly contain multi-tiered dispute resolution clauses, as is the case in the ICC model contracts and the FIDIC suite of contracts. These clauses aim to avoid disputes or to resolve them at an early stage. Disputes that are not settled through the preliminary tiers are often resolved through ICC Arbitration.

    During this seminar, the nature of these disputes will be discussed. Secondly, this seminar will provide insight into the dispute avoidance and resolution mechanisms often adopted in the construction and engineering sector, particularly in light of the 2017 update of the FIDIC suite of contracts and the ICC model contracts. Attention will be given to the various preliminary tiers, including decisions of engineers, dispute boards and an amicable settlement period. The seminar will also provide insight into different perspectives on conflicts in construction and engineering projects.

    Global marketplace for medicinal and aromatic plants

    Worldwide, the lifestyles of some 6.3 billion people rely on the cultivation of plants. Demand for herbal drugs, cosmetics, foodstuffs and other products in this already vast market continues to grow. Taken together, plant products form a specialised but lucrative sector with plenty of opportunities. Meanwhile, sustainable plant use contributes to global well-being and a healthy ecosystem.

    Aware of the industry’s immense potential, MAP EXPO has been established as the go-to global marketplace for the key players in MAP-related sectors. This unique event aims to enhance and integrate links in the supply chain, matching suppliers with buyers and developing new markets in the process. Specialist knowledge can be exchanged, and market leaders both new and old will have an opportunity to influence the MAP industry’s future direction.

    The MAP EXPO is the first international event that focuses on the whole production of plants: raw materials (plants, herbs, spices, teas, seaweed etc.), plant extracts (essential oils, resins, medical/aromatic contents), herbal consumer products (OTC drugs, cosmetics, supplements), and machinery to produce herbal products

    Some results of the first edition of MAP EXPO Last year:

    DDW

    Every year the Dutch Design Foundation organizes the largest design event of Northern Europe. From 20 - 28 October, Dutch Design Week will present the work and concepts of over 2600 designers and welcome more than 335.000 visitors to Eindhoven. One of the official DDW location is Sectie-C, a creative terrain populated with over 250 creative people. One of them is a member of the NCCC and there she owns a gallery, Art Experience by KRL. For this year’s DDW, she will be presenting the exposition, curated by Justine Kontou, and a dinner experience, initiated by design food studio The Eatelier and chef Pippens, 28 grams of happiness. 

    For this special evening, our host will first give us a tour of Sectie-C. Following the tour, we will be treated to a unique welcome drink designed especially for the NCCC. Then we sit down for a fantastic culinary experience.

    This year, they are experimenting with happiness, and how to cultivate it through food. How does food impact our physical and mental state or even our senses? What does food do to our brain and can we anticipate the effects? Can we define the taste of happiness by optimizing the taste and the sensorial experience? Could we regard food as a bit of a drug, if we take a closer look at the reactions in your brain? Should we look at food the same way we would medicine or drugs, with the intention of improving health? A healthy body is a happier body, is it not? By translating scientific research into the world of food, Katinka and chef Pippens will answer these questions by creating an eye opening, educational, exciting, and sensorial dinner experience.

    Exposition

    The dinner will be accompanied by an exposition that will take us on a complete journey in the pursuit of finding happiness, and it will show us how design can provoke a sense of wonder, luck, content or gratefulness. The exhibition is set in the gallery Art Experience by KRL on Sectie-C and curated by the talented Justine Kontou, who’s skills lie in the cultivation of emotion through space and object. In addition, some Canadian produced pieces will also be featured.

    Dinner Presentation

    The dinner is set to 16 courses and invites (max.) 28 guests to take a seat at a long table. The courses will be served individually or on big platters to help get conversation started and have guests interact with each other. During the meal, Katinka and Pepijn will step out of the kitchen and elaborate on each dish and course. Guests will be handed a printed menu that gives an insight into the underlying research.

    The ticket includes your DDW entrance fee to Sectie-C, guided tour, welcome drink and 16 course dinner with wine pairing. Payment in full is required before reservation can be confirmed. Tickets are exclusive BTW and are non-refundable but are transferable.

    NCCC Members and 1 guest € 90,00 per person
    Additional guests € 99,00 per person
