We are proud to announce that Dr Roy Lowry, Technical Director of BODC, has received a prestigious Achievement Award from the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE), part of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).

Established in 1961, the IODE programme has grown through the hard work of hundreds of experts from around the world to become an active global network of data centres and information centres. Since 2009, IODE has bestowed Achievement Awards in order to express special appreciation of those experts who have contributed time and effort to the programme.

Roy has made major contributions over the past three decades. For example

Fittingly, Roy was presented with his award at the first Ocean Data Interoperability Platform (ODIP) Workshop, hosted by the IODE Office in Oostende in February 2013.
