Andy Hopper knighted for services to Computer Technology

lowRISC is delighted that Andy Hopper, lowRISC’s independent chair, has been knighted for services to Computer Technology.

Andy said “As you might imagine I am delighted. What I have achieved is all a result of teamwork. The University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Cluster have provided a wonderfully collaborative and flexible environment within which I have had the good fortune to work for over 40 years.”

The culture he created, and his interest in and support for doing things in non-standard ways, has helped to establish over 200 start-ups, including lowRISC CIC.

Sir Andy Hopper, CBE, FIET, FREng, FRS, is Treasurer and Vice-President of the Royal Society and Professor of Computer Technology in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge.
