Call with the Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP)

The SNSF is participating in the Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) for Social Science and Humanities (SSH), which is a collaboration between research funders from South America, North America and Europe.

The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) for Social Science and Humanities (SSH) aims to enhance the ability of funders, research organizations and researchers to engage in transnational dialogue and collaboration in the field of SSH. The present call is focused on Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World (RRR).

The RRR call aims to address key gaps in our understanding of the dynamic and complex interaction of medium and long-term societal effects of COVID-19 pandemic. This understanding, in turn, should advance knowledge of how to mitigate the negative societal effects of COVID-19 pandemic and support recovery and renewal in a post-pandemic world. Applicants are required to submit novel interdisciplinary and significant SSH research proposals that address one or more of the following five challenges related to COVID-19:

  • - Reducing inequalities and vulnerabilities
  • - Building a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable society
  • - Fostering democratic governance and political participation
  • - Advancing responsible and inclusive digital innovation; and
  • - Ensuring effective and accurate communication and media

Applicants must apply as a transnational research project partnership. Each project must comprise at least three eligible Principal Investigators from at least three different T-AP participating countries from both sides of the Atlantic.

Please take note of national guidelines and get in touch with the contact person for more information. You will find a list of participating countries on the scheme's official website.
