International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR)

The IIR is an intergovernmental science and technology organisation (58 member countries) that is devoted to the promotion of knowledge on refrigeration and associated technologies that improve quality life in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable way.

The CIHEAM and the International Institute of Refrigeration have signed an MoU on the 4 June 2014 in Paris to enhance their partnership, to seek synergies in their respective areas of expertise and intervention and to contribute to improving food security in the Mediterranean and to better consider the issues related with logistics of the cold chain in the region, in a context where the struggle against waste has become of utmost importance.
