ARCHON’s educational activities are organized in close collaboration with, and hosted by its member institutions. In addition, ARCHON represents the interests of academic archaeology in the Netherlands by having a representative in the Central Committee of Experts (CCvD).
ARCHON’s educational tasks are delegated to the ARCHON Office. As of January 2018 it is established at the Faculty of Humanities of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU). The ARCHON Office takes care of daily affairs and the communication, coordination and organisation of educational activities.
