“We are both impressed and proud of our young researchers,” said Jürgen Neugebauer, Chairman of the GlassCon Global Scientific Committee and a professor at the University of Applied Science FH Joanneum in Graz, Austria. “Their presentations helped us drive innovation in glass technology during the GlassCon Global conference.”
The awards were presented during the GlassCon Global Welcome Networking Reception and Young Researchers Award Ceremony held on July 8 at the National Constitution Center. To be eligible for the awards, the young researchers had to submit an abstract to the GlassCon Global scientific committee, be selected to present at the conference, submit their white paper and then deliver their presentation to attendees at the conference.
GlassCon Global is a technical conference that was developed to drive innovation in glass technology. The first event of its kind in North America, GlassCon Global brought together all facets of the architectural glass and glazing industry for two-and-a-half days of education, collaboration and networking. The information shared and relationships created and strengthened will help build tomorrow’s innovations today.
