Global Cooperation in the World of Glass

ICG is a  not-for-profit GLASS SOCIETY comprising 33 national organizations in glass science and technology.

ICG promotes cooperation between glass experts through its Technical Committees (round robin testing, publication of scientific & technical papers and conferences).

Its logo features the Egyptian hieroglyph for "brilliance".
