The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) for Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) is an unprecedented collaboration between humanities and social science research funders from South America, North America and Europe. T-AP aims to enhance the ability of funders, research organisations and researchers to engage in transnational dialogue and collaboration. It also works to identify common challenges and promote a culture of collaboration in SSH research by offering Joint Research Calls in areas of strong potential for international collaboration.

 The T-AP funding organisations and project management agencies have partnered to create a 3rd Joint Research Call focusing on COVID-19 Recovery, Renewal and Resilience (RRR) in a Post-Pandemic World. Even though South Africa is currently not a T-AP full member, the National Research Foundation (NRF) has joined this T-AP COVID-19 RRR Call and will support South African researchers wishing to participate in this call.
