What we stand for

At ICArEHB, we are committed to advancing the scientific understanding of human evolution and behavior, as well as promoting ethical and responsible research practices, inclusivity and diversity, and the dissemination of knowledge. 

A diverse range of perspectives is essential for advancing scientific understanding, and we strive to create an environment that is welcoming and supportive for researchers from all backgrounds. 

Our center is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of scientific integrity, and we prioritize the ethical treatment of human remains, artifacts, and other cultural heritage objects in our research. We recognize the importance of working closely with local communities and stakeholders to ensure that our research is conducted in a respectful and mutually beneficial way.

Finally, we are committed to open science principles, which prioritize transparency, collaboration, accessibility in scientific research, and the dissemination of research findings to the broader public. We believe that knowledge should be accessible and shared widely, and we work to engage with diverse audiences through public lectures, workshops, and exhibits.
