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.
