The Trans-Atlantic Platform is a collaboration between humanities and social science research funders from South America, North America, and Europe. Public research funders in Europe and the Americas have partnered to increase transatlantic research collaboration in the social sciences and humanities. This includes strengthening the supports for research cooperation and adopting policies to meet the needs of 21st century research.

The Trans-Atlantic Platform aims to enhance the ability of funders, research organizations and researchers to engage in transnational dialogue and collaboration. It works to identify common challenges and promote a culture of collaboration in social science and humanities research. It facilitates the formation of networks within the social sciences and humanities and enables all participants to connect with other disciplines. The Trans-Atlantic Platform also strives to heighten awareness of the role the social sciences and humanities play in addressing 21st century challenges.
