The IOR is seeking nominations for the J&E Hall International Gold Medal, which salutes innovation in refrigeration and related fields.
Each year the IOR, in association with J&E Hall, recognise the achievements of someone who has strived to help the industry to progress in a critical area. Past winners have included individuals such as Dr Mark McLinden of NIST in the USA, who helped provide the industry with tools to identify new, environmentally-friendly refrigerants, and Ian Tansley of SureChill UK, an innovator who has designed a refrigerator for vaccines that can provide reliable cooling in areas with erratic power supplies.
- Practical applications of innovative designs
- Projects which have made an original contribution to the field
- Systems which demonstrate substantial potential and evidence that they will be completed successfully
- Outstanding and significant work in a new or unusual area
The £5,000 award and Gold Medal will be presented at the IOR Annual Dinner on February 27 2020 by J & E Hall International on behalf of the IOR and the winner will be invited to present a paper on their work to members the following year.
Full details can be found on the IOR website and the deadline for nominations is November 5.
