It is a tradition of the EASP to honour members who make an outstanding contribution to the discipline. Every three years, on the occasion of the General Meeting, one member receives the Tajfel Medal and is invited to deliver the Henri Tajfel Lecture. This recognizes the contribution of a senior researcher to the field of social psychology over the course of their lifetime. In 2017 we will, for the first time, grant a Moscovici award to honour the author(s) of an outstanding theoretical contribution to the field.
In addition, three Jos Jaspars Medals are awarded to young scholars and three Lewin Medals are presented to mid-career scientists who have made outstanding research contributions. Finally, three Codol Medals recognize people who served the Association in important ways and significantly advanced the cause of social psychology in Europe.
The medals are designed and struck by the renowned medal-makers, Alexander Kirkwood in Edinburgh. The Tajfel and Moscovici medals are cast in silver; the Jaspars, Lewin and Codol medals are cast in bronze.
