Nominations sought for Gold Medal
UK: Nominations are being sought for this year’s J&E Hall Gold Medal for outstanding technical achievements in refrigeration and related fields.
Now in its 41st year, this internationally respected award is open to individuals or teams 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 award is designed to encourage progress rather than acknowledge past achievement and the winner will join a select list of recipients that includes refrigeration greats such as Prof Gustav Lorentzen, Prof P Ole Fanger, Prof Don Cleland, Ron Conry, Prof Pega Hrnjak and Eckhard Groll.
The presentation will take place at the 119th Institute of Refrigeration Annual Dinner in London on February 21. The winner will receive a gold medal to hold for one year, a silver replica to keep and a cash award of £5,000.
Deadline for nominations is the October 15.
