Our founding spirit
Without Agora Center we might not have the Jyväskylä Human Technology City
—Matti Manninen, 6.3.2010
To lower the barriers between departments and faculties, to do research together
−Lea Pulkkinen, 6.3.2012
Our focus areas
The Agora Center research program evolves currently around 7 Focus Areas:
Each Focus Area has its own lead and a historical portfolio, and new research ideas are continuously generated within and at the intersections between the focus areas and their associated research groups.
We share the vision of developing the future knowledge society from a human-centric point of view.
University + Co-Creation = Innovation
