The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) has launched a new online portal.
New features include:
•Online downloads of IIR articles and papers in the Fridoc database
•Full expertise and laboratory directories enabling refined searches
•A more comprehensive events section including archives of IIR events, a selection of refrigeration events, and an agenda of IIR events
•E-mail alerts for all users of the portal and customizable alerts for IIR members
Until October 2011, the IIR has opened up its Fridoc database to all visitors who register to use the portal. Everyone can consult the database and download quotas of digital IIR articles and papers free of charge. To download articles and papers free of charge after the trial offer, users of the portal can become IIR members.
An independent and intergovernmental organization, the IIR aims to improve and promote knowledge of refrigeration technologies and applications. Through its mission, it addresses current issues such as food safety, health, energy, and environmental protection.
