The United Kingdom’s Institute of Refrigeration has issued a call for nominations for the J&E Hall International Gold Medal. Now in its 38th 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 award is designed to encourage progress rather than acknowledge past achievement. The presentation will take place at the 116th Institute of Refrigeration annual dinner in London. 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 Nominations are requested by Oct. 15.
