Phytopathological Society (CPS) and American Phytopathological Society
(APS) in 1986, and an endowment fund was then established by the CPS. More
recently, the Lecture has been given at some International Congresses of
Plant Pathology (ICPP1998 to 2013).
Jacob Eriksson Prize
The Jakob Eriksson Prize is the pre-minent international
award for plant pathology, and is awarded every five years at the
International Congress of Plant Pathology. The Royal Swedish Academy of
Sciences administers the Jakob Eriksson Prize Fund which provides for a
gold medal award at Congresses of the International Society for Plant
Pathology. In advance of each Congress, nominations are solicited for a
candidate of distinction in recognition of research in mycology, in plant
pathology, or in virus diseases, or of a particular publication dealing
with such subjects, with the understanding that the work being recognized
is of a distinct international value and merit.
