Since 1992 the conferring of the __Erasmus Medal__ of the Academia is a highlight of the opening session of the annual meetings. 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 medallist is invited to give the annual Erasmus Lecture during the opening session of the Annual Meeting of the Academia.
\\ \\
The __Erasmus Medal in 2017__ will be awarded to a scholar working in a field belonging to our
“__A2__” Class (A7: __Behavioural sciences__, A8: __Social sciences__, A9: __Law__, A10: __Economics, business
and management sciences__). In agreement with the decision of the Board, __ALL members of AE
are eligible to nominate a candidate for the Erasmus Medal__ (and the nominations are not
restricted to members of the “relevant sections” [[i.e. in the case A7-A10] only) and the section
chairs will be asked to inform the members of their sections about the nomination.
\\ \\
You are most welcome to submit a __nomination__ using the [nomination form|Nomination form 2017.docx] via email to [Prof. Gulyás|User/Gulyás_Balázs] at [balazs.gulyas@ki.se|mailto:balazs.gulyas].
\\ \\
The most important part of the nomination is the “__case for the award__” which should be comprehensive and concise, emphasising the candidate‟s most distinguished achievements and her/his lifetime scholarship in the respective field. If possible, the nomination should be complimented with the CV and the publication list of the candidate as well as a suggested „laudator‟ of the candidate.
