An invitation from
Professor Russell Hand
President of the
Society of Glass Technology

We'd like to welcome you to Sheffield in September 2016, for a very special event.

It is hard to imagine modern life without the fascinating material that is glass. We have come a long way in our use and understanding of this material since Professor WES Turner founded the Society of Glass Technology in 1916 to bring the wider glass community together, yet significant challenges and opportunities remain.
