EERA notes with great sadness the recent passing of our friend and colleague Meinert A. Meyer.
Meinert was a cornerstone of EERA's activities in the field of Didactics, Teaching and Learning and was an enthusiastic, long-term supporter for EERAs Emerging Researchers Group.
He was one of the initiators of the Didactics network in 2006 and served the group as reviewer, convenor and link convenor. He initiated and conducted international research projects and was one of the members of NW27 who actively sought to cooperate and support educational research on a global level within WERA (World Education Research Association) and their International Research Network on Didactics. EERAs Emerging Researchers Group greatly profited from his constructive feedback as reviewer and session mentor, as well as from his professional support for incoming ERG Link Convenors .
In addition to his profound knowledge and experience in the field and his ability to empower others, those who had the joy to work with him will miss his inspiration, creativity, kindness and sense of humour very much.
