For this Public Award, everyone can vote for one of the three nominees from February 14 to March 13. This year, all three nominees are female. The winner will be announced on March 15, during the Day of the Engineer. Princess Beatrix and Princess Mabel will also be present at that event.

Jacquelien Scherpen is a professor in System and Control Engineering at the Engineering and Technology Institute Groningen (ENTEG), director of the Groningen Engineering Center and captain of science of the top team Holland High Tech.

"I think it is fantastic to work with young people, to see them flourish and to be able to stimulate their creativity, while at the same time being able to work on major societal challenges."

The Royal Institute of Engineers (Koninklijk Instituut van Ingenieurs, KIVI) is presenting the award for the ninth time this year.
