The Agora scheme aims to foster dialogue between scientists and society. It encourages researchers to communicate their current research to an audience of lay people. Agora projects have to initiate a dialogue between researchers and the public in which they interact and listen to each other.
Projects with a budget of up to CHF 200,000 (Agora projects) need to be submitted by the Agora submission deadline on 1 September at 17:00 CET.
Projects with a budget of up to CHF 50,000 (Agora rolling call projects) can be submitted all year round.
