The NEST PATHFINDER initiative on "What it means to be human" was launched in 2003. Following two calls for proposals, 17 projects have been selected for funding. These projects investigate the origins and development of human's higher cognitive faculties from a comparative and evolutionary perspective. A High Level Group was established in 2005 with the aim to examine, forecast and describe this emerging scientific field, its potential impact and future support needs of the research involved in this initiative. The present report summarises its findings and recommendations.
