Outstanding Service to the Field of Social Psychology
This award recognises outstanding service to the EASP or social psychology in Europe more broadly. This can be by means of their service to the field, for example, a non-research contribution such as advancing the standing or prominence of social psychology in one or more member countries. Contributions to the development of European social psychology as a whole, as well as building bridges between social psychologists from one region to those of another, or advancing the field in novel academic contexts, all qualify as service to the field.
There is no open call for this award, but suggestions from EASP members are typically invited in the Autumn prior to the General Meeting. Suggestions should include a brief justification. Suggestions of groups are also welcome. The awardee(s) will be selected by the Executive Committee. The awardee(s) will receive a certificate and their registration fees for the General Meeting will be covered by the EASP.
