GÉANT CEO, Bob Day, awarded an MBE

Dr Bob Day, Executive Director Janet, and currently Chief Executive Officer of GÉANT, was awarded an MBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) as part of the British Queen’s New Year honours list 2015, for services to information technology.

Educated as a physical chemist, it was during Bob’s postdoctoral research that his interest in the application of distributed computing to scientific research was first engaged. This led him to pursue a career in the development of research and education networking. GÉANT's CONNECT magazine caught up with Bob to discover more about his journey to achieving this prestigious award.
