The Glass & Optical Materials Division Calls for Glass Research Videos

By Erica Zimmerman / February 1, 2017

The Glass & Optical Materials Division would like to invite all the active glass research leaders to produce 5~8 min videos (in English) showing their main research lines, faculty and staff, and lab facilities, in a free, creative style. We aim to collect hundreds of videos, which should be very useful to stimulate collaboration among glass researchers scattered in the four corners of the planet, and also for prospective students and post-docs that are trying to find alternative study possibilities, new positions and opportunities for research collaboration.
