Gero Thomas Medal Recipient

Dr Bob Lambourne, Director of Studies for Physical Sciences, has been awarded the 2014 Gero Thomas Medal by the European Physical Society (EPS), in recognition of his contributions to physics education within the Society.

The European Physical Society is the umbrella organization for national physical societies across Europe, and represents about 100,000 professional physicists.

Gero Thomas was the first Secretary General of the EPS, and the Gero Thomas Commemorative Medal is awarded annually for services to the Society.

Said Dr Lambourne, 'Said Dr Lambourne, 'I'm deeply honoured to receive the European Physical Society's Gero Thomas Medal. Though, in accepting the award I also aware that the EPS is nothing if not a collaboration and that I could have achieved very little without the support of colleagues across Europe and even beyond. I am very glad to have been able to contribute in any way to this great international effort.'
