The winner received a prize of € 5.000, donated by the COWOG Fund, a work of art and an invitation to develop and give a course unit for the Honours College. The two runners-up received each € 2.500.

The Extended Board of Campus Fryslân nominated Dr Thomas Long for this prestigious award. Thomas Long is an assistant professor for the Sustainable Entrepreneurship masters at Campus Fryslân.
