The European Human Behaviour and Evolution Association (EHBEA*) is an interdisciplinary society that supports the activities of European researchers with an interest in evolutionary accounts of human cognition, behaviour and society. EHBEA organises annual European conferences and occasional workshops, and provides research funding. EHBEA aims to support work with a broad, pluralistic and interdisciplinary perspective. EHBEA encourages rigorous science, with strong theoretical foundations and integration across disciplines. *(pronounced ‘ee-bee’)
