Where research meets the people: 12 new Agora projects approved


Following the 8th call for proposals for its Agora funding scheme, the SNSF has approved 12 new projects submitted by researchers aiming to share their research with the public.

​Of the 32 submitted project proposals, the SNSF will support 12 with a total amount of just over CHF 2.3 million, which corresponds to approximately 40% of the amount requested. 58% of the funded projects are related to the humanities and social sciences, 25% to mathematics, natural and engineering sciences and 17% to biology and medicine.

The Agora map

The aim of most projects is to stage an event in Switzerland. The Agora map is offering an overview of these events and helps to make them more visible - it includes past, present and future events. The map is a source of inspiration and point of contact for researchers who are interested in submitting an Agora project.
