The plaque of the Asset Award can be found in the boardroom of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration. It is a copy of the plaque in the hall of the Tjalling C. Koopmans building, to which the names of the Award winners are added every year. The winner of the Tjalling C. Koopmans Asset Award is considered to have made extraordinary contributions to the economic sciences and to have reached the highest standards of quality in research.
