The Hayek Foundation was founded in 1999 on the occasion of the 100th birthday of the Freiburg economist and Nobel Prize winner Friedrich August von Hayek by the former Federal President. D. Roman Herzog and the former foundation board member Lüder Gerken. Aim of the foundation is to strengthen and promote the prerequisites of a liberal economic and social order, as conceived by the Nobel prize-winning economist Friedrich August von Hayek.
Back in 2011, the Estonian and Latvian prime ministers shared the same prize.
