Was braucht es, um die Welt zu verändern?

Was braucht es, um die Welt zu verändern?

Die Anwohner von Corning nannten unser Unternehmen in den 1870ern “Smokestack University”, zu Deutsch „Schornstein-Universität“, weil sich wissbegierige Forscher und Wissenschaftler in den Werken von Corning der Forschung und Entwicklung neuer Produkte und der Verbesserung von Produktionsverfahren widmeten.

Als sich der Wissenschaftler Dr. Eugene Sullivan im Jahre 1908 Corning anschloss, stand außer Frage, dass Forschung und Entwicklung die Zukunft des Unternehmens bestimmen würden. Sullivan war es auch, der bei Corning eine wissenschaftliche Entdeckungsmethode in der industriellen Forschung und Entwicklung einführte und etablierte. Er verstand die chemischen Eigenschaften von Glas und konnte diese ändern und so neue Verwendungszwecke schaffen.

Life-Changing Innovations

What does it take to transform the world?

Corning’s success stems from our founders’ deep belief in the scientific approach to glassmaking. Their philosophy: let other companies stamp out drinking glasses, bottles, and plate glass windows. Our people would focus on more vexing problems like creating the heat-resistant glass sleeve for Thomas Edison’s light bulb and developing a reliable railroad signal that could reduce fatalities. We wanted to make the glass innovations that could change the world.

Gordon S. Fulcher Sabbatical program

Sabbatical program aims to build glass researcher pool

Concerned about the scarcity of industrially relevant glass research in academia, Corning is working to strengthen the future of the U.S. glass industry.

We took a major step toward that goal by establishing the Gordon S. Fulcher Sabbatical program, which is one of the first U.S. programs specifically focused on glass research.  Starting in September 2015, two professors from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute took six-month sabbaticals at our Sullivan Park Research and Development facility in Erwin, N.Y. This is the first time Corning has designed a sabbatical program and invited applicants from the academic community.
