Agora is developing a social platform in which connections between museum objects are made based on historical events.

Historical events are used as a flexible model to identify semantically relevant relationships between objects in very diverse museum collections. As a result, meaningful 'cause' and 'effect' links are created along the main axes 'who', 'what', 'where' and 'when'. In this way, Agora wants to create a community-based historical events thesaurus linked to museum objects.

Agora was financed by the NWO CATCH programme.
