The Trans-Atlantic Platform includes a number of partners and associated partners, including social sciences and humanities research funding agencies from across Europe and the Americas. The European Commission acts as observer for the Platform.
Closer co-operation between the European Union and the Americas is essential for encouraging effective, structured and coherent international scientific co-operation in social science and humanities disciplines at a global level. The Trans-Atlantic Platform, therefore, intends to further expand to include other partner organizations. Associate membership in the Platform is open to all Latin American countries and EU Member States, as well as to associated states of the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
Associated partners will enjoy identical privileges and have access to all network activities and services (workshops, databases, website, etc.) in the same way as the partners. However, associated partners participate in the project without signing the Grant Agreement with the European Commission.
