Welcome to AGATE

The fundamental research of the European Academies of Sciences and Humanities significantly contributes to the study and preservation of Europe’s cultural heritage. AGATE pursues the long-term goal of a pan-European digital platform that improves the visibility and findability of the academies’ SSH research and promotes international cooperation. In the initial phase, all running projects funded in the German Academies' Programme between 1979 and today are included in AGATE’s database. The Academies’ Programme is the joint research programme of the German Academies, which is equally funded by the federal government and the federal states. It is coordinated by the Union of the German Academies, the umbrella organisation of eight German Academies of Sciences and Humanities.
