The IC is a free international association of institutes and organizations legally operating in higher education and research with a specific interest in the design, production, technology and management of media. The IC was founded in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1957 by a few mid-European universities for printing technology. IC is cooperating with other institutes and organizations of all types from the wider field of graphic communication and media technology, printing, publishing and packaging around the world, to promote this goal.
IC provides:

  • a platform for the exchange of knowledge and cultural issues.
  • a mutual presentation and comparison of institutions, as well as contact with printing and publishing businesses, suppliers and organizations.
  • opportunities for cooperative relationships between directors, educators and students of the various member institutions.
