The Network is an informal association of institutes which are entrusted with the education of archivists and records managers. Its members are working together to promote the international exchange in the archival field.

Our history

Originaly Hans Scheurkogel (Archiefschool Amsterdam) had the idea to establish the Network. In January 2005, he emphasized in a primary working paper how desirable it would be to intensify the cooperation between the individual educational facilities in Europe. The Network of Archival Educators and Trainers was supposed to be the first step in this direction.

The Archive School Amsterdam invited colleagues from Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom and they, therefore, met for the first time in May 2005 in Amsterdam to exchange their views.

A second meeting, where the Swiss colleagues also participated, took place in September 2006 in Hamburg.
Since the third meeting, which was held 11-13 June 2008 in Marburg also French institutes are member of the network.


The Network had organized the international ARCHIDIS Summer Schools in 2011, 2012 and 2013

At the last meeting in Potsdam in Mai 2014 the network decided to organize a doctoral Workshop in Summer 2015.
