August 1, 2023 754

The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) for Social Sciences and Humanities has issued its fourth joint research call to produce research targeting societal issues related to the economy, politics and more while advancing democracy, governance and trust. T-AP is a collaboration between humanities and social science research funders from South America, North America and Europe.

The democracy, governance and trust program welcomes humanities- or social science-related proposals that are cross-national, interdisciplinary and include a wide range of methodologies. The call seeks to create transnational research teams, to co-develop work programs with communities and key stakeholders like policymakers, and to encourage equity, diversity and inclusion through its research teams, environments, designs and practices.

Proposals can focus on subjects related to the following democracy, governance and trust-centered topics:

  • Concepts, understandings and models of democracy, governance and trust
  • Education
  • Media, information and communication
  • Economies and economic systems
  • Identities, discrimination, marginalization and inequalities
  • Ecosystems and environments
  • Epistemologies, knowledge and expertise
  • History and culture
  • Power, authority and conflict

Those interested should submit a compulsory notice of intent to apply by September 15 at midnight BRT. Full proposals should be submitted by a team’s lead principal investigator by November 6, 2023, at midnight BRT using the online submission portal SAGe.

Participating funding organizations include:

  • São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) of Brazil
  • Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC) of Canada
  • Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada
  • Croatian Science Foundation (HRZZ) – TBC of Croatia
  • Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) of France
  • National Science Centre (NCN) of Poland
  • National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Africa
  • Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) of Switzerland
  • UK Research and Innovation (the Arts and Humanities and the Economic and Social research councils) of the United Kingdom
  • National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) of the United States
  • National Science Foundation (NSF) of the United States

Applicants can contact the appropriate national contact person for a funding organization to verify they have met the criteria for the funding they are requesting.

T-AP will host a webinar on August 8 at 1 p.m. UTC to explain the call and application process.
