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.
