A special mention was given to Mark Schelbergen;
Mark Schelbergen is a PhD student in aerospace and engineering, who is very much en-gaged in the open science aspects of his project in wind energy and beyond. He has systematically published in open access and has compiled an impressive portfolio of publicly available software and data, encouraging also others to contribute. As a result of these open activities, Mark is at the center of several international research collaborations. With his inviting attitude, he is setting a great example of how open science can be practically implemented.

From the jury report: ‘Mark is strong in raising awareness with his peers. As a PhD student, he is even active in creating open pre-university courses. This asks for special encouragement!’
