A Tradition of Global Cooperation in the Challenging World of Glass
ICG is a non-profit making international GLASS SOCIETY comprising 37 national organizations in glass science and technology.
ICG promotes cooperation between glass experts through Technical Committee work (round robin testing, publication of scientific & technical papers) and conferences.
The symbol in the logo is the Egyptian hieroglyph for "brilliance".
