Education and Capacity Building

CDC also supports a few selected projects per year dedicated to mathematics education and capacity building.


Supported activities include the Capacity and Network Project (CANP) of the International Commission on Mathematics Instruction (ICMI) which fosters mathematics teacher training and capacity building in developing countries.  The project started 2011 in Mali and will be continued in 2012 in Costa Rica and in 2013 in Cambodia.


CDC has also supported the Inter University Ibero-American Mathematics Competition (IMMC) which was held in 2011 in Ecuador.


Also a workshop series on the topic on how to find and access online information resources in mathematics and initiated by the European Mathematical Society Committee for Developing Countries (EMS-CDC) and its member Anders Wändahl had been supported by CDC.
