ASHRAE and IOR sign new MoU Agreement

ASHRAE and the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) formalizing the organizations’ relationship, which dates back more than a century.

The new MoU outlines how the two groups will work together more closely and with more defined parameters to continue furthering and promoting the advancements of cooling and heating related technologies. These include but are not limited to research; joint conferences and meetings; training and education programs; publication distribution and chapter collaboration.

As part of the agreement, ASHRAE and IOU will explore ways to make technical information more accessible to both memberships. The MoU additionally places special focus on continuing to build and strengthen the organizations’ global networks. As ASHRAE and IOR continue growing their memberships internationally, the possibility of joint events would benefit both groups. Co-hosting a conference or meeting would directly support global collaboration that could help further the impact ASHRAE and IOR have on the industries they serve.

The MoU was signed by Tim Wentz and Stephen Gill as part of the CIBSE ASHRAE Technical Symposium 2017 at Loughborough University on April 6.
