Studying the evolution of human societies

Human palaeoecology is the study of human ecology over time. This way of looking at the subject enables us to track the development of human societies.

The IPHES was founded in 2005 as a cross-disciplinary advanced research and teaching institute that aimed to socialise knowledge from the earth and life sciences, merging it with the social sciences.

Based on its research work, the IPHES contributes to teaching in the third cycle. It organises a wide range of socialising activities, i.e. using different channels and mechanisms to bring the results of its research work back to society, so that people can benefit from them.
