Share free materials
Research
Encourage and coordinate collaborative research
(Outreach)
Enable disadvantaged communities
153 Current GeoGebra Institutes in 85 countries
More coming soon …

Difficulties of serving large communities
GIs can reach mostly local teachers/communities

Members work in different institutions

Large geographical areas to cover

If many people involved that results in too large staff

Maintain independence of work
Towards a GeoGebra Institute network
Rather than country-wide institutes, GI network serves better a countries' or regions' needs

Establishing local institutes, but encourage a coordinating committee (locally decided)

New website will serve as a coordination point
Institute network case: Spain
