About the event

IIR International Congresses of Refrigeration (ICR) are milestone events. Since 1908, a congress has been held once every 4 years uniting refrigeration stakeholders from every corner of the world.

A place where dialogue and discussions on important technical issues happen, the ICR is known as a platform for in depth exchange and analysis that covers all aspects of refrigeration. 


In 1925, the Japan Society of Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers, JSRAE, was established to develop and disseminate knowledge nationally and internationally on refrigerating and freezing technology together with related scientific technologies. For over 45 years, it has functioned as a non-profit academic organization in the field of refrigeration.
