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".

Every three years ICG organises the International Congress on Glass, and sponsors an annual conference during the intervening years.
