AGORA: Research infrastructure for social sciences
Proper research requires a good set of data. All data are collected by the researchers directly if possible (e.g. through ad hoc surveys), or are extracted from the numerous registered administrative sources of information from the federal authorities.

At the start of the new millennium, social and economic realities in Belgium appear increasingly complex. The objectives of the Society and Future programme are to untangle these complex phenomena and provide the scientific knowledge that is necessary to enable the federal state to respond successfully to the challenges it faces.

It aims to promote research which meets three criteria:

> high scientific standard;
> citizen involvement.
