A story of innovation

Glasgow is a hotbed of innovation

From Sir Alexander Fleming with penicillin to John Logie Baird with TV; from John McAdam with macadamisation of road surfaces to James Beaumont Neilson with the blast furnace, as well as the architectural genius of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Alexander “Greek” Thompson. It’s a story of invention, entrepreneurialism and transformation.
