The Awards Committee recognized the influential contributions of Kersten to the big data problem, his outstanding achievements in scientific research in advanced database architectures and his pioneering work in the realization of MonetDB.

Increasingly, remote sensing data is made publicly available by organizations like ESA and NASA. Based on these data, and in combination with other sources, new valuable applications can be created. In the European research project Linked Open Earth Observation Data for Precision Farming (LEO) researchers from CWI and the University of Athens join their forces with industry partners to develop an application for precision farming.
