Experts' colloquium "Glass & Light" on 18.09.2010

Ten experts' presentations on glass conservation, construction physics, glass design and lighting architecture.

We are glad to be able to present to you in the context of our special events during this celebration of our company's 130th anniversary a series of ten expert presentations from confirmed specialists on topics which are part of the work we do every day.

Each of these 20-minute presentations will be followed by ten minutes of discussion, so that you can address with the presenter the specific questions which are important to you.
