The Tuebingen Research Campus (TRC) welcomes the Senckenberg Centre for Human Evolution and the Palaeoenvironment (HEP) as a new partner institution. Recently established as a member of the Leibniz Association within the "Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung", HEP focuses on processes driving the biological and cultural evolution of humans and their ancestors in the context of changing palaeoenvironments.

Senckenberg and the University of Tuebingen have been cooperating in research on early human history since 2008. In 2009, they decided on the creation of the Senckenberg Center for Human Evolution and the Palaeoenvironment at the University of Tuebingen. The creation of HEP as an independent institute within Senckenberg and the Leibniz Association will further strengthen Tuebingen's position as a world leader in research on palaeontology and archaeology.
