HVG and DGG stage several series of events of advanced training. These events address different person groups from the glass and the supply industries, as well as from universities and authorities. The presentations and discussions are in German as a rule; on special occasions, simultaneous translation is available.

This one-day event is directed towards executives from the glass and the supply industries. Results of current scientific investigations with special emphasis on applicability in industrial practice are presented to the participants.

HVG Advanced Training Course

The one and a half day HVG advanced training courses are mainly of interest to engineers in the glass and the supply industries as well as to students of universities, colleges and special colleges of glass technology. Objective of the courses is to provide the participants with proven knowledge from the practice of glass production. HVG puts special value on inviting speakers with experiences in the industry.
