IIR Creates Group on Careers in Refrigeration

The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) has created a new Working Group on Careers in Refrigeration “CaRe”, chaired by Dr Catarina Marques.

At the 24th International Congress of Refrigeration in Yokohama (Japan), the IIR organized the second “Reception for Students and Young Researchers”, a student and senior researchers’ speed networking event and its first Women in Refrigeration networking workshop. Both events inspired the initiative to create a “Careers in Refrigeration” working group, as well as a sub-working on “Woman in Refrigeration”.

Introduced into refrigeration during an internship at Bristol University, Dr Catarina Marques will chair the new Working Group. She has a degree in food science and completed an industrial CASE award PhD at London South Bank University (LSBU), where she was previously a research fellow. She currently works at Adande as the Engineering Manager (Foodservice) and is a member of the IIR and IOR (UK Institute of Refrigeration).

The objectives of the new Working Group include developing  and  putting  forward  an  international  and  national  strategic  plan  to  promote  careers in refrigeration to the younger generation and women, building general awareness of the importance of the refrigeration industry, particularly to the younger generation, and identifying  problems  and  obstacles  that  stop  the younger  generation  aspiring  and  envisaging  a  career  in refrigeration.
