How about organizing an online Cimpa Course?

An (open) online CIMPA course is an online course in Mathematics at master’s or research level for students from developing countries.

We offer several options to meet different needs and provide you with an open-source platform specifically designed to manage online interactions.

You can also record your lectures at CIMPA or at Nesin Mathematics Village.

This call for projects is ongoing, so you can submit your proposal for a CIMPA course throughout the year.
