Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World

The Trans-Atlantic Platform for Social Sciences and Humanities (T-AP) is delighted to launch its third joint research call on “Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World” (RRR call).

The COVID-19 pandemic is a major crisis that touches on all aspects of health, social, economic, political, and cultural life. The T-AP research call 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 research proposals in the social sciences and humanities.

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 invited to read all application materials carefully before applying.

Proposals of the RRR call must be submitted by the lead principal investigator via the online submission system SAGe, hosted by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), which acts as the administrator for the RRR call.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the relevant national contact persons and to ensure that all call requirements and eligibility criteria of the funding organisations from which funding is requested are fully met.
