Turkey’s advanced R&D inspires tomorrow’s innovations

In this issue we look at research and markets in Turkey. The cover story explores how Turkey banks on “innovation active” enterprise and technology to strengthen its economic and foreign commerce potential. In-depth market snapshots of Turkish trades, treaties, and tariffs are included. Plus, the “Deciphering the Discipline” column compares the experiences of conducting research in Turkey and the United Kingdom.

An additional feature article traces the etymological origins of various words for “glass” throughout the centuries to provide insight into the characteristics that various civilizations and people saw and valued in the material. Then, the application of glass in global solar energy markets is explored in the “Business and Market View” column.

Finally, the October/November issue announces the ACerS leaders for 2022–2023. The Society will install new officers and directors on the ACerS Executive Committee and Board at the 124th Annual Business Meeting in October.
