Thanks to our funders

ESLR is grateful to the following organisations for supporting our workshop: the European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB), the European Human Behaviour and Evolution Association (EHBEA), the Galton Institute, the Institute of Behavioural and Neural Sciences (IBANS), University of St Andrews, the Student Association, University of St Andrews, and finally the School of Biology, University of St Andrews.

The European Society for Evolutionary Biology brings together evolutionary biologists from Europe and across the world, including researchers, academic teachers, students, and journalists as well as others interested in evolution. ESEB holds a biennial Congress which is one of the largest meetings in evolutionary biology. The next meeting is in Turku, Finland, from 19th-24th August 2019.

The European Human Behaviour and Evolution Association is an interdisciplinary society for researchers with interests in evolutionary accounts of human behaviour, cognition, and society. EHBEA holds annual conferences , with the next meeting occurring in Toulouse, France, in 2019. EHBEA also offer student research grants, and the next deadline for applications is the 1st of August 2018.

The Galton Institute is a learned society with a focus on the scientific study of all aspects of human heredity, from molecular genetics to population dynamics, demographics, and human evolution. It aims to promote the scientific exploration of these subjects, and to stimulate and inform public debate. The institute’s 2018 conference on Genome Editing will take place on the 31st of October 2018 at the Royal Society, London, UK.

The Institute of Behavioural and Neural Sciences at the University of St Andrews is an interdisciplinary community of researchers who study the behaviour of both human and non-human animals from cellular, neural, cognitive and evolutionary perspectives. IBANS brings together faculty and students from the Schools of Biology, Psychology and Neuroscience, Medicine, and Chemistry. Most members of the institute are available to supervise doctoral students. The institute holds both annual symposia and research forums.
