The United Nations declared 2022 the International Year of Glass (IYoG), a year devoted to celebrating “the essential role glass has in society.” Corning Incorporated, industrial partner of the NANO-GLASS consortium and Diamond Sponsor of IYoG, was integral in putting the event together.
The IYoG opening ceremony was held last February in Geneva, Switzerland. During this event, Corning’s chief strategy officer, Jeff Evenson, gave the talk entitled “Glass: The Journey from Magic to Science… and Back.”
In his talk, Evenson explores the attributes of glass and how they can solve some of world’s toughest challenges such as illness, climate change, and inequality. See Jeff’s full talk at the link here.
