EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

Call for Nominations for the 2023 EAPP-EASP Award

26.01.2023, by Media Account

Deadline: February 28, 2023


The Executive Committees of the European Association for Personality Psychology (EAPP) and the European Association for Social Psychology (EASP) are looking for nominations for the 2023 EAPP-EASP award. The award will be presented at an award ceremony during the virtual 2023 EAPP Day.  Award recipients will receive a one-year membership waiver at both associations, and they will be invited to give a talk at the virtual 2023 EAPP Day (the date of the event will be announced later this year).
The EAPP-EASP Award was established in 2020. This award honors European researchers who study phenomena at the crossroads of personality and social psychology and who have greatly contributed to both fields. Nominees for the award should be active in both disciplines (i.e., publish in journals and attend conferences in both fields) and enjoy a high reputation in both research communities.
Nominations from scholars from underrepresented regions and populations, and those conducting research on these regions and populations, are encouraged.
Research topics include but are not limited to, person × situation interactions, socio-cultural influences on individual differences, personality-relationship transactions, individual differences in experimental social phenomena (e.g., priming, stereotyping), experimentally assessed social-cognitive mechanisms of personality and individual differences, the impact of individual differences on social behavior (e.g., group processes), integration of situational and long-term effects on social behavior, and other research fields bridging social and personality psychology. Candidates should have studied phenomena of this type with methods that go beyond single cross-sectional self-ratings, for example, by observing measuring group or dyadic processes, or collecting social network data, employing experimental or physiological methods, or using sophisticated observational methods and big data.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for the award, candidates must be a member of either the EAPP or the EASP, or both at the time of application and a mid-career researcher (obtained their PhD degree between 12 and 25 years ago on December 12, 2022).

Nomination Procedure

Nominations by others and self-nominations are equally welcome. The submissions should include in one PDF:

  1. A supporting statement (max. 700 words) describing the nominee’s achievements that merit this recognition;
  2. Curriculum vitae of the nominee (max. 10 pages).

If needed, the Award Committee may request further information from the nominators.

Award Committee

An Award Committee is appointed by the Executive Committees of the EAPP and the EASP, and it will consist of three members (including a Chair). The Award Committee for 2023 will be chaired by John Rauthmann, President-Elect of the EAPP. If a committee member has a conflict of interest (e.g. professional relation, ongoing cooperation, or a joint publication with a nominee), this committee member will be replaced.

Deadline for Nominations

The deadline for the nominations is the February 28, 2023 at 23:59 CET. Nominations should be sent to If you have any questions about the award or the nomination process, please email to
