The Agora Thessaloniki project was established by Cedefop in 1997. The purpose of an Agora, three of which took place in Thessaloniki every year, to provide a space for researchers to engage in debate with political/government representatives and social partners about a current topic. The starting point for an Agora was the results of research on a specific topic which are then discussed in a structured way with the above mentioned people. To date, ten Agoras have taken place dealing with topics such as: the role of enterprises in lifelong learning; addressing the issue of lowly skilled people; reporting on Human Capital. Agora XI in 2001 dealing with the learning region was jointly organised by the Cedra and Agora teams. Source: http://www.cedefop.europa.eu/EN/Files/5140_en.pdf
