Who we are

HERE: The Human Evolution REsearch initiative

Human evolution
is about understanding who we are and where we come from. Biological and cultural diversity is a result of myriads of changes over time. These changes express the complex evolutionary history of humans and related species from our origin in Africa millions of years ago to the global society of the 21st century.

The Human Evolution Research Initiative
brings together researchers from all four faculties at Aarhus University.  The ambition is to support a lively and inspiring interdisciplinary research community at the university with a focus on understanding the human species and our closest relatives from an evolutionary perspective.
