CompCog is an ESF Research Networking Programme titled “The Evolution of Social Cognition: Comparisons and integration across a wide range of human and non-human animal species”. The programme brings together 29 European laboratories from 11 countries, and runs for 5 years from May 2008 to April 2013. It is financed by the Standing Committee for the Social Sciences and the Standing Committee for Life, Earth, and Environmental Sciences of the European Science Foundation.
Its general objective is to develop “real” comparative cognition across a wide range of vertebrate and invertebrate species (including humans) with coherent theoretical background, unified terminology and standard methods, and to make it transparent for and integrated with other fields, like social sciences, genetics, physiology, animal welfare, robotics, and so on.
