Please describe the activities, strategies or projects of your organization related to the Social Innovation

The Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES) is a transdisciplinary institution that promotes advanced research, education and knowledge transfer, and social engagement with science. Our aim is to promote knowledge both about ancient human species, our evolution and the human beings today.
Our foundational goals are:
- Studying the changes and transformations in human evolution and behaviour through fieldwork, laboratory analysis and research.
- Developing and applying scientific thought and action based on the evolutionary continuum of human history and on the interactions between the human species and its environment.
- Working with empirical data in the fields of archaeology, geology, biology and botany, in an open and trans-disciplinary scientific framework.
- Developing evolutionary concepts and models, in which species-based knowledge is directly applied to the social realm.
- Fulfilling our foundational goals by engaging in three lines of work: research, training and foresight.
- Collaborating with other institutions, universities, and research centres at an international level.
