The inaugural award was awarded to Fons Sips in memoriam at the WONCA Europe Conference in Prague 2017. In 2004, on the occasion of the WONCA Europe Conference in Amsterdam, he used his great inspirational force to gather European young doctors and inspire them to form a group and find themselves a name... it is legendary that he started sketching a ship... and the rest is history.
