Agora - taking research to the public

Submission deadline

15/Aug/2016

The Agora scheme aims to promote the spread of knowledge, as well as the exchange of views and perspectives about scientific research. It therefore encourages projects involving two-way processes - with interaction and listening - which generate dialogues between researchers and the public.

​​Grants of between CHF 5,000 and CHF 200,000 are awarded for both small communication formats and large-scale initiatives with more far-reaching goals. Diverse activities are supported, for example: discussions and debates, hands-on workshops, participatory science, multimedia projects, serious games, theatre and performances, interactive exhibitions, education projects with schools, etc.

Applications can be submitted until 15th August 2016
