The aim of the society is to support and raise the quality of Nordic and Baltic research in mathematics education, and especially through the collaboration among researchers in the Nordic and Baltic countries. An important aim is to achieve funding for the activities among members in NoRME by initiating applications to funding bodies. The member societies are autonomous and NoRME will not interfere with their internal affairs. The aim of the society is also to support the aims of the member societies concerning research in mathematics education and to ensure the continuation of NOMAD and NORMA-conferences, as well as to create forums for discussions and constructive meetings for researchers in mathematics education. The aim is also to ensure the collaborative continuation of activities such as those carried out by the Nordic Graduate School of Mathematics Education, NoGSME.
