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. These meetings are committed to a broad, pluralistic and interdisciplinary perspective. EHBEA encourages rigorous science, with strong theoretical foundations and integration across disciplines. To join EHBEA, please see the Membership page.
