The institute of ceramics and glass is one among the 130 centers established in association with State Agency for Scientific Research (CSIC). The mission of ICV is to produce logical and innovative learning in the field of ceramic and glass materials. All the projects being researched at this institute are funded by the Spanish National Research Plan, European Union Framework Program and the Regional Programs of Madrid. ICV also very frequently makes all efforts in spreading knowledge through Courses, Workshops, and seminars for students, technical teams and research scholars. ICV located in the Canto Blanco Campus, Madrid is of the most genuine institute to outsource latest information to the industrial and educational scholars.
This institute constitutes several departments such as Ceramics Department, Electroceramics Department, Chemical-Physics of surfaces and processes Department, Glasses Department. of the Institute of Ceramics and Glass is a parallel administration as for the R and D exercises of the Institute. Its principle targets are the joint effort with the artistic organizations and labs, mechanical focuses and research divisions. The administration performs quality control in both crude materials and completed items utilizing European principles. Certain generation procedures are likewise created at the research center scale. Another movement is to draw up authority reports identified with mishaps or claims. The Scientific-Technical Services at ICV incorporates those procedures of portrayal of clay materials and glasses accessible at ICV, and in addition the specialized faculty appointed to them.
The current Research frame includes some the below projects:
• Ceramics and Glasses for Energy, Environment and Transport.
• Advanced processing technologies for structural and multifunctional ceramic materials and systems.
• Ceramics and Glasses with Social and Industrial Impact.
Keeping in mind the end goal to make the overall population mindful of both the innovative work did at the Institute of Ceramics and Glass , a progression of educational recordings are being completed to transmit this examination to society in a reasonable, basic and justifiable way.
The Institute of Ceramics and Glass has a library spend significant time in pottery and glass materials.
The ICV library has more than 4000 monographs and 491 diary titles, 62 of them are live. The quantity of propositions recorded surpasses 200. Additionally it also maintains records of Spanish Society of Ceramics and Glass stores, made out of 253 diary titles alive and shut.
Given participation in the grounds of the Autonomous University of Madrid,they also have a cozy association with the Library UAM Sciences and the Institute of Ceramic Technology (ITC), a concurred joint Institute between the Association of Ceramic Industry Research (AICE) and the Universitat Jaume I (UJI).
At present for participation to CSIC Library Network, clients can access from the inside to every single electronic asset coordinated and oversaw by the Information Resource Unit Scientific Research (URICI).
