AGORA: Effective collaboration because health affects everyone!

Since 2005, AGORA is active as an Academic Collaboration Centre for the region Gelderland. AGORA is a collaboration between MHS north-east Gelderland and Wageningen UR.

AGORA connects knowledge from policy, research and practice. Using this connection, we base policy both on scientific evidence as on insights obtained from practice, creating more effective public health programmes.
