Trans-Atlantic Platform Call “Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World” open for Croatian researchers

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 launch its fourth joint research call on Democracy, Governance and Trust.

The T-AP call on Democracy, Governance and Trust (DGT) seeks to understand specifically how democracy, governance and trust are integral to the tackling of both short-term crises and long-term challenges and are themselves a focus of the discontent and disruption facing many societies. The DGT call aims to deepen and widen our knowledge and understanding of opportunities, challenges, and crises, relevant to democracy, governance and trust.

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.

Expected duration of projects: between 24 and 36 months.

The full text of the call is available on the Trans-Atlantic Platform’s website.
