The Josef Rudinger Memorial Lecture Award is presented every two years, during the European Peptide Symposium, in commemoration of Josef Rudinger’s role in the foundation of the European Peptide Symposia and of diverse contributions he made to peptide chemistry. Potential recipients are nominated by an EPS member. Preference is given to a candidate with longstanding contributions to the field. The Scientific Advisory Committee of EPS reviews the nominations and makes a recommendation to the Executive Committee which selects the final list of candidates. The members of the General Assembly then elect the recipient. The lecture is given during a special ceremony at the opening of the European Peptide Symposium. The laureate receive a medal and a certificate with honorarium. A list of previous recipient is available at the EPS website in the Award section.
