The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) for Social Sciences and Humanities, an unprecedented collaboration between humanities and social science research funders from South America, North America and Europe, is pleased to announce its third joint research call on Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World (RRR).

Aim and scope of the call

The COVID-19 pandemic is a major crisis that touches on all aspects of health, as well as social, economic, political and cultural life. The T-AP research call on RRR aims to address key gaps in our understanding of the dynamic and complex interaction of medium- and long-term societal effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This understanding, in turn, should advance knowledge of how to mitigate the negative societal effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and support recovery and renewal in a post-pandemic world. Applicants are required to submit novel interdisciplinary and significant social sciences and humanities research proposals that address one or more of the following five challenges:

  • * reducing inequalities and vulnerabilities
  • * building a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable society
  • * fostering democratic governance and political participation
  • * advancing responsible and inclusive digital innovation
  • * 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. Applicants are encouraged to start discussing possible projects with prospective partners.
