About Cora Maas

Cora Maas, who died in February 2010, was known as an 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 an 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.

Marie Østergaard Møller is especially happy to receive the price from The European Consortium for Political Research.

- Teaching at the ECPR School in Methods and Techniques has always felt as an award. The school attracts great, ambitious, and engaged students, who always go an extra mile to learn new methods and difficult methodology. I am very honored to be awarded the Cora Maas prize 2021 for teaching the course in interpretive methods.
