SYNOPSIS

The Trans-Atlantic Platform Recovery, Renewal, and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World (T-AP RRR) opportunity supports international, collaborative research projects that address key gaps in our understanding of the complex societal effects of COVID-19.  Specifically, T-AP RRR supports research that addresses one or more of the following challenges:  reducing inequalities and vulnerabilities; building a more resilient, inclusive, and sustainable society; fostering democratic governance and participation; advancing responsible and inclusive digital innovation; and/or ensuring effective and accurate communication and media.

Proposals requesting NSF funding must fit within the scientific purview of the NSF Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE). Proposers are strongly encouraged to consult SBE’s programs and contact the cognizant program director (see Contacts, above) to discuss their proposals’ fit within NSF/SBE’s purview prior to submission of the international team proposal to the T-AP RRR Call. 

International Team Composition

T-AP RRR supports collaborative research teams from four continents: Africa (Republic of South Africa); Europe (Croatia, Finland, France, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom); North America (Canada, the United States); and South America (Brazil and Colombia).  Teams must include researchers based in at least three participating T-AP RRR countries and must include partners from both sides of the Atlantic, i.e., from Europe/Africa and the Americas. Research partners will receive funding from their own national funding agencies for projects of up to 36 months in duration.
