Trans-Atlantic Platform

Trans-Atlantic Platform 400dpiLogo


The Trans-Atlantic Platform is a collaboration—on an unprecedented scale—between key humanities and social science funders from Brazil, Mexico, the Unites States of America, Canada, and Europe. The Platform will underpin a truly trans-Atlantic network of programme managers, and social sciences and humanities research councils and facilitators, with involvement across the Americas from Canada to the Southern Cone. The Platform intends to expand to include more partners in the future.

The ISSC’s specific tasks have been to work on a co-operation strategy to broaden the engagement and to extend the network and cover more of the social sciences.
