The Human Adaptation Institute aims to better understand the cognitive and physiological mechanisms of human adaptation in facing rapid or long-term change. Our studies are carried out in real life situations, solely on humans, in an equal manner and considering all physiological, cognitive and ecosystem parameters impacting the notion of Adaptation.
Our results enable us to better prepare for the future as well as to propose levers of action beforehand in order to reduce possible impacts. The Human Adaptation Institute aims to better understand the cognitive and physiological mechanisms of human adaptation in facing rapid or long-term change.

Axes of work
Axe 1: Extreme Changes
Studies carried out during expeditions in extreme ecological environments, as well as during climatic or social crises, which act as life accelerators.
Axe 2: Behavioral Adaptation
Studying one’s ability to change their behavior to anticipate change before it happens and implement actions to reduce any negative impacts.
Axe 3: Climatic Impact
To study the impacts of extreme climates on humans in all their dimensions: cognitive, physiological, psychological, social, etc.
Axe 4: Freedom and Autonomy
Studies and evaluations of individual and collective freedoms and the associated autonomy.
Axe 5: Migratory Adaptation
Work in-situ, monitoring forced migrants during their migratory journeys, involving deep and numerous changes in particularly extreme living conditions.
Axe 6: Change Management
Faced with the transformations of today’s world, companies must change. The Adaptation Institute is studying how companies are implementing change and how they are going about it (and how they could optimize it).
