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, the Erasmus Medal is awarded on the recommendation of the Council of AE 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 2021 will be awarded to a scholar working in a field belonging to our Class A2 (Social Sciences).

You are most welcome to submit a nomination using the 2021 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 A2 (Behavioural sciences; Social sciences; Economics, Business and Management sciences; Law).

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.

If possible, please compliment your nomination with the CV and the publication list of the candidate as well as a suggested ‘laudator’ of the candidate.

As the Board intends to make its decision about the final medalist during its meeting in October in Barcelona, the closing date of the nomination period is the 31st of October 2020 (midnight GMT).
