Collaborators & Partners of the Trans-Evol project
Trans-Evol is a collaboration between the CNRS-MNHN research unit Histoire Naturelle de l'Homme Préhistorique UMR7194 (Paris, France), the National Museums of Kenya (Nairobi) and the Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies (University of Cambridge, UK). It relies on a large collaborative network of specialists from several international institutions and the fieldwork is highly dependent upon a specialized team of Turkana field assistants.
The project is financially supported by the CNRS (International Research Project Trans-Evol LIA1262, CNRS/INEE), by the French Foreign Office (Missions archéologiques françaises soutenues par le Ministère de l'Europe et des Affaires Etrangères) and by a Fyssen Foundation Research Grant.
Trans-Evol field seasons are led in cooperation with the In Africa project.
