Cora Maas, who died in February 2010, was a most outstanding pedagogue. She taught the ‘multilevel analysis’ course at the ECPR Summer School in Methods and Techniques in 2007 and 2008, before her health forced her to stop. She was a great inspiration for the junior researchers who followed her courses and in memory of this the ECPR have dedicated an award in her name to encourage junior researchers to aim for excellence in both methodology and pedagogy.
