jehallgoldUK: The IoR is seeking to award the individual or group that has made the most outstanding technical contribution to refrigeration in the past year.

Now in its 37th year, the internationally recognised J&E Hall International Gold Medal is presented annually in recognition of outstanding technical achievements in refrigeration and related fields. 

The award is designed to encourage progress rather than acknowledge past achievement and is open to individuals or teams with recent outstanding achievements in practical applications of innovative designs, projects which have made an original contribution to the field, systems which demonstrate substantial potential or outstanding and significant work in a new or unusual area.

The presentation will take place at the 115th 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. 

Information about the award and a nomination pack is available at www.ior.org.uk/jehallgoldmedal. Closing date for nominations is October 15 2014.
