7th Toulouse Economics and Biology Workshop

May 23–24, 2019

Manufacture des Tabacs, Toulouse


Just as physics provides a foundation for chemistry, and chemistry for medicine, biology is the natural foundation for any science that seeks to understand the behavior of living beings, including humans. This year we will be holding the 7th Toulouse Economics and Biology Workshop. In the past, this workshop has dealt with topics such as the evolutionary foundations of morality, the intra-generational transmission of preferences, the family, and cognition and rationality. This year the theme is Cultural Evolution. Speakers come from several disciplines, including biology, computer science, economics, physics, and psychology.

Besides the plenary sessions, there has been a poster session to which post-docs and Ph.D. students are most welcome to submit applications (abstract + CV + cover letter) to no later than March 30, 2019.


This event has been funded by a French government subsidy managed by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche under the framework of the investissements d'avenir programme reference ANR-17-EURE-0010.
