1966 - Hagedorn Prize awarded for the first time

The Chair of the Danish Society for Internal Medicine, Kurt Iversen, contacts the Board of Nordisk Insulinlaboratorium in 1965 and proposes creating an honorary prize in honour of Hans Christian Hagedorn. The Board agrees and the first Hagedorn Prize is awarded in 1966 to Tage Hilden. At that time, the prize was about DKK 30,000, but the money accompanying the Prize has grown over the years to DKK 250,000.
