The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) represents a global first in establishing a mechanism for effective and structured multi-lateral engagement of research funding agencies in Europe and the Americas.

Its overall mission is to cultivate insights and evidence about human thought and behaviour in the past and present by enhancing the ability of funders, research organizations and researchers to engage in transnational collaboration.

To achieve this goal, T-AP will undertake two activities:

  1. Offering joint calls for research in areas of strong potential for international collaboration;
  2. Collaborating to align policies and practices to facilitate international collaboration in the social sciences and humanities.
