ICARhub is the new ICArEHB framework program for 2021-2023. It brings a set of four instruments that will advance and develop frontier research in prehistoric archaeology and paleoanthropology. It is envisioned as an incubator of ideas, approaches, tools, and skills to actively participate in the advancement of knowledge. Our ambition is to connect scholars, schools of thought, and institutions to foster the emergence of new ideas and produce knowledge and skills that will have a strong impact on our understanding of prehistory.

It includes four “instruments” that have different objectives. See below and click for more details.
