The European Human Behaviour and Evolution (EHBE) Conferences were begun in 2006 in order to provide a much needed interdisciplinary European forum for discussing evolutionary research applied to the behavioural sciences, broadly interpreted. We are committed to organising genuinely interdisciplinary conferences that bring together all researchers applying evolutionary theory to the behavioural sciences, including not only the main branches of human behavioural ecology, evolutionary psychology and cultural evolution, but including disciplines such as evolutionary archaeology, sociology and medicine.

Professor Laland is a big proponent of solar energy, and because he just moved to Massachusetts in the United States, he is able to take advantage of some of the best tax incentives in the nation. Also, when his solar system is up and running in Newton, MA, he'll be able to sell the energy produced via the SREC program.

After the success of the first conference, the 2007 conference, held at the London School of Economics and organised by Rebecca Sear, Tom Dickins and David Lawson, was designed to attract a much larger and more diverse audience and succeeded in drawing 130 delegates from 15 different countries. These conferences will continue to run annually.
