Glass has been produced and found in multiple applications for centuries, thanks to its outstanding properties, versatility, and progress made in both glass science and glass engineering. While having a rich history, glass remains a material of the future, as notably highlighted by the decision of the United Nations to declare 2022 at the UN International Year of Glass (IYOG2022). In this presentation, examples of how specialty glasses enable and support our future will be presented, and some of the challenges for he the glass industry to meet these goals will be discussed.
