Honours and Awards
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, for the first time, the Moscovici award to honour the author(s) of an outstanding theoretical contribution to the field was granted.
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.
EJSP Early Career Best Manuscript Award
The editorial team of the EJSP awards an annual prize to the best paper published in EJSP in the preceding year which has been first-authored by a researcher who has received their doctoral degree within the previous three years.
