The Institute of Refrigeration is calling for nominations for the J&E Hall International Gold Medal. Now in its 41st year, this internationally respected award is given in recognition of outstanding technical achievements in refrigeration and related fields.

The Award is open to individuals or teams with recent outstanding achievements in one or more of the following areas –

  • 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 presentation will take place at the 119th Institute of Refrigeration Annual Dinner in London, UK and the winner will receive a gold medal to hold for one year, a silver replica to keep and a cash award of £5,000.
