T-AP Social Innovation Call Awards Announced
Trans-Atlantic Platform Announces 10 Teams to be Awarded Grants in the Social Innovation Call.
The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) for the Social Sciences and Humanities, a collaboration between funders from several different countries, is pleased to announce the awardees of the T-AP Social Innovation Call. A total of approximately €4,966,000 million was awarded to ten international teams to investigate collaborative research projects which will add to understandings of social innovation and deliver social innovations through new research.
The T-AP Social Innovation Call is supported by selected international funders from across the larger T-AP funding network. The participating countries and funding organizations in this call include: Brazil (FAPESP); Canada (SSHRC, FRQSC); Finland (AKA); France (ANR); Germany (BMBF/DLR); Poland (NCBR); The Netherlands (NWO); United Kingdom (AHRC, ESRC). Each of the funded teams include principal investigators and partners from a minimum of three countries, with participation on both sides of the Atlantic. These teams will be pursuing interdisciplinary research on a diverse range of topics related to social innovation, including the arts, environment, sustainable development, history, healthcare, education, youth, housing, social activism and Indigenous research.
The T-AP is a collaboration between key humanities and social science funders and facilitators from South America, North America and Europe (full list of T-AP partners). The Platform aims to enhance the ability of funders, research organizations and researchers to engage in transnational dialogue and collaboration. The T-AP Social Innovation call builds upon past collaborative activities under the T-AP Digging into Data Challenge.
