Trans-Atlantic Platform Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World (RRR) Call for Proposals

14 June 2021 @ 10:30 am

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) has announced that it is participating in the third joint research call on Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World (RRR) launched by the Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP). SSHRC is collaborating with key humanities and social science funders in Europe and the Americas to support international research projects that can contribute to increasing our understanding of societal transformations and the role of social innovation.  A summary is provided below. 

Objectives 

  • To address key gaps in our understanding of the dynamic and complex interaction of medium-and long-term societal effects of the COVID-19 pandemic 
  • To advance knowledge of how to mitigate the negative societal effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and support recovery and renewal in a post-pandemic world. 

Applicants are required to submit novel interdisciplinary and significant social sciences and humanities research proposals that address one or more of the following five challenges: 

  • reducing inequalities and vulnerabilities 
  • building a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable society 
  • fostering democratic governance and political participation 
  • advancing responsible and inclusive digital innovation 
  • ensuring effective and accurate communication and media 

Projects are required to address the challenge(s) through one or more of the following approaches from a trans-Atlantic comparative (cross-country) perspective:  

  • assess the mid to long-term economic, social, political, health, educational, environmental, technological, legal, psychological, or cultural impacts and ethical implications of the COVID19 pandemic; 
  • generate new perspectives and insights that would inform development of appropriate and effective responses and interventions to combat COVID-19; and/or 
  • assess the effectiveness as well as transferability and unintended or long-term effects of responses and interventions by government and other societal actors to these impacts and the lessons arising from them for recovery and renewal. 

Eligibility 

Each project MUST comprise at least three eligible principal investigators from at least three different T-AP participating countries from both sides of the Atlantic. Please see the Call for additional eligibility requirements.
