Young, gifted and on track

Identifying and encouraging talent is a key role for the Institute of Refrigeration to help the industry prepare for future challenges.

This is not limited to our activities in the UK – we are also keen to promote the standing and opportunities of UK industry internationally. 

In a combined initiative between the IOR International Refrigeration Committee and our Young Engineers Network, the Institute has developed a format for a workshop that helps young researches at the beginning of their careers make important and useful contacts with experienced people across the globe. 

The events not only give those fairly new to the industry a chance to meet people they might only usually hear at a podium giving technical lectures, it allows them time to ask for advice about how they can develop their own careers in the sector. 

Our RAC Young Engineers Network has also run several successful workshops along the same format in different regions in the UK – building links between colleges, universities and employers at an individual level to highlight the fantastic careers that could be available in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump technical roles for enthusiastic students and researchers. 

Readers who would like to participate in future events or themselves employ researchers who would like to gain a broader knowledge of the industry they may be leading in the future should contact lisa@ior.org.uk
