EPS Historic Sites - Guidelines for nominations


All nominations must be submitted using the online form below.

Please fill in the required information and make the essential argument of relevance for the nomination in the historic site description.

The EPS Historic Sites Committee evaluates nominations three times a year. After the decision you will be notified.


If your nomination gets approved a commemorative plaque needs to be produced. Some elements of the design are mandatory (EPS logo & EPS Map of Europe) and the final text on the plaque also needs the approval of the EPS HS Committee. The material and format of the plaque can be unique for each individual case to fit the intended location. The cost of the plaque is carried by the local organiser.

The local party and the EPS will agree upon the date for the commemoration of the proposal (the unveiling of the plaque). A delegation of high-level EPS representatives will attend the ceremony.

The committee would as soon as possible like to receive the following information after your nomination has been approved.

  • Have your nomination received all local approvals?
  • Are you in contact with your national physical society about the nomination?
  • Which institutions etc. will be involved in the ceremony?
  • Will there be an event like a conference in connection with the ceremony?
  • What financial support is secured and from where?
  • What media coverage is expected?

The EPS also expects the local organiser to submit articles about the event for the EPS publications e-EPS and EPN.

Please note that if the site has not been inaugurated with a ceremony within three (3) years, the nomination has to be redone.


For questions about nominations, please contact:

  • Karl Grandin, chair of the EPS Historic Sites Selection Committee or
  • Gina Gunaratnam, administrative officer for the EPS Historic Sites

These guidelines are intended to help you with your application and for you to have a better understanding of the process that follows.
