Post Time:Mar 04,2015Classify:Industry NewsView:411

Rob Ireson, Innovation Team Leader at Glass Technology Services, subsidiary company of British Glass, spoke recently at the prestigious Ravenscroft Lecture about how glass has shaped the way we currently live, before highlighting the potential of glass to transform the future.   


Held on 18th February in London, there were over 100 people in attendance at the event, including representatives from House of Fraser, Arup, Johnson Matthey and architects, Eckersley O’Callaghan.


Taking fundamental glass chemistry and a little blue-sky thinking, Rob explored how glass-based technologies might transform the way we live and interact with the world as scientific capabilities and funding converge to make this a reality.


The Ravenscroft Innovation Lecture was organised by the Master of the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London, one of the City’s ancient Livery companies, and sponsored by Bryan Cave LLP and GTS.


It was a significant honour to be invited to speak and the event was a great success, enabling those from British Glass and GTS who attended an opportunity to network and develop relationships with new and existing contacts.
