Find out what’s on offer…

Why become an IIR member?


The IIR international network is comprised of experts from 59 countries and provides a concrete platform for all refrigeration professionals to connect with peers, create contacts and build new partnerships.

Additionally, technologies and regulations are changing very rapidly due to environmental constraints, not to mention new needs, such as those currently emerging for the storage and transport of vaccines for Covid-19. These constraints and opportunities will increase.


More than ever, quality scientific, technical and regulatory monitoring is needed. Today, it is essential to participate in a network of industrialists and academics from all over the world, in working groups that develop positions and participate in new regulations.


Who is it for?


IIR membership is ideal for, but not limited to:

  • Researchers
  • Engineers and technicians
  • Political leaders
  • Professors
  • Students
  • Companies
  • Associations
  • Universities
  • Laboratories
  • Public authorities
  • Media

Of course, if you are a member of an IIR Commission or Statutory Body, you can still become a paying member to benefit from exclusive services!
