Since 1992 the conferring of the Erasmus Medal of the Academia is a highlight of the opening session of our annual meetings. Based on nominations by the membership, evaluation and recommendation by the relevant AE class’ committee, and decision of the Board, the Erasmus Medal is awarded to a scholar (preferably, but not necessary, a member of AE) who has maintained, over a sustained period, the highest level of international scholarship. The medalist is invited to give the annual Erasmus Lecture during the opening session of the Annual Meeting of the Academia.

The Erasmus Medal in 2022 will be awarded to a scholar working in a field belonging to our Class C (Life Sciences).

You are most welcome to submit a nomination using the 2022 nomination form(info) via email to Prof. Gulyás, Coordinator of the Erasmus Medal search process, at, with a copy to our secretariat (

As mentioned above, the field of activity of the nominee should belong to a discipline covered by our Class C (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Cell and developmental biology, Physiology and neuroscience, Organismic and evolutionary biology, Clinical and veterinary sciences).

The most important part of the nomination is the “case for the award” which should be comprehensive and concise, emphasizing the candidate’s most distinguished achievements and her/his lifetime scholarship in the respective field, with special regard to enriching our European scientific heritage. Please keep in mind that the medalist is expected to deliver a plenary lecture at one of the future distinguished meetings of AE in front of a mixed audience and, consequently, an attractive and eloquent speaker is always welcome.
