This laboratory is located on the Akademgorodok scientific campus in Novosibirsk and is hosted within the IAET, an institute world-renowned for the excellence of its excavations on sites of utmost importance for the understanding of the mechanisms of human settlement over the last million of years.
This multidisciplinary joint research laboratory in archaeozoology will be dedicated to studying human / non human animals relations in Siberia and Central Asia from the Pleistocene to the early Holocene. The research conducted jointly will contribute to understanding the impact of human groups on their environment and the response of animal populations to environmental changes over a long period.
The IRL « ZooSCAn », built on the long-standing dynamics of Franco-Russian scientific collaborations and exchanges, will enable the anchoring of priority scientific programmes for both partners and will benefit from the exceptional archaeological collections of the IAET. This partnership will strengthen the strategic position of the two institutions, at the heart of a research area of global interest both geographically and thematically, and will position the CNRS and France at a very high level in the international competition.
