* In April 2017, the achievements of Jürg Jegge – for which he was awarded the Doron Prize – were overshadowed when serious misconduct on the part of the prize winner came to light. The Foundation Board utterly condemns this misconduct, but will not strip Mr Jegge of the prize as he has not been convicted under criminal law at present.
