The goal of the project's research and development is a
web-based interactive learning system (for mathematics) that uses
instruction as well as constructivist elements.

The project provides an architecture, basic knowledge
representations, and techniques for new-generation on-line
interactive mathematics documents (textbooks, courses, tutorials)
and e-learning.

The Electronic Mathematical Archiving Network Initiative (EMANI) is a co-operational system of reference libraries and content providers for the storage of digital content in mathematics, the retrodigitisation of printed publications in mathematics, and the long-term preservation and archival of digitised content.

EMANI combines the expertise of the partner libraries and of members of the Mathematical Community and applies it to the task of managing growing digital backfiles and digital publications in mathematics. The result will be an archiving and online dissemination system for math materials that is responsive to needs of academic libraries and the scholarly communities they serve. The development of this system is an ongoing project of the EMANI partners.

The EULER services provides a simple but comprehensive and unified gateway to the electronic catalogues and repositories of participating institutions. It covers bibliographic databases as well as library catalogues and thus provides the most direct route to obtaining information about mathematical literature, as well as the literature itself.

The Jahrbuch Project

The Jahrbuch Project provides a database of the "Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik" (JFM) and a digital archive of the most important mathematical publications of the period 1868 -1942.

The LIMES Project

The goal of the LIMES Project is to improve the facilities of the European Database in Mathematics with Zentralblatt as its core, to transform Zentralblatt within this framework to a distributed European enterprise, and to improve and widen the access of Zentralblatt to European countries by providing structures for a better distribution on the technical and on the economical level.

The aim of the MONET project is to demonstrate the applicability of the latest ideas for creating a semantic web to the world of mathematical software, using sophisticated algorithms to match the characteristics of a problem to the advertised capabilities of available services and then invoking the chosen services through a standard mechanism. The resulting framework will be powerful, flexible and dynamic, yet robust and easy to navigate, putting state-of-the-art algorithms at the disposal of users anywhere in the world.

Almost all mathematical documents available on the Web are marked up only for presentation, severely crippling the potentialities for automation, interoperability, sophisticated searching mechanisms, intelligent applications, transformation and processing. The goal of the project is to overcome these limitations, passing from a machine-readable to a machine-understandable representation of the information, and developing the technological infrastructure for its exploitation.

The Reference Levels Project is a Europe-wide examination of mathematics teaching in primary and secondary schools, aimed at giving comparative data for assessing the state of mathematics education in Europe.

TRIAL-SOLUTION

The Trial-Solution project provides for teachers and learners in the field of mathematics access to a library of teaching materials distributed over the Internet. The software developed within the project assists in preparing teaching materials from existing materials, e.g., LaTeX documents, and at the same time provides tools for classifying and cataloguing mathematical teaching materials in sophisticated ways, making possible the automated and interactive delivery of learning materials corresponding to specific user needs.

WebALT: Web Advanced Learning Technologies

The WebALT project aims at using existing standards for representing mathematics on the web and existing linguistic technologies to produce language-independent mathematical didactical material.

The WebALT project will create software and sample content for an XML database of mathematical problems to be used in undergraduate university courses in mathematics. The technological solutions to be developed by the project are aimed to be applicable directly to middle and high school mathematics instruction.
