ECHO was founded in order to provide high-level training in archaeological theory, method and practice in Egyptian archaeology, to establish collaborations between Egyptian and international academics, and to promote academic and public engagement via the ECHO website and in its various publications. ECHO is a non-governmental organisation (NGO), makes no profits, and is dedicated to the protection, conservation and understanding of Egypt's threatened heritage.
The ECHO Board of Trustees and Associates is comprised of highly trained and experienced archaeologists with specialisations that support the ECHO doctrine.
Professor Fekri A. Hassan – Director of Cultural Heritage Management at the l'Université Française d'Egypte and Emeritus Petrie Professor of Archaeology at UCL’s Institute of Archaeology – is ECHO’S Honorary President.
He is joined by Neil Robson, (Secretary and Lawyer), Janet Johnstone (Administrator and Researcher), Dr Aloisia de Trafford (Egyptologist and Researcher), Nigel Hetherington (Archaeologist and Media Consultant), Emma Smith (Consultant) and Dr Lawrence Owens (Bioarchaeologist, Researcher and Editor).
