The second phase of ENTRi began in April 2013 and is set to run until March 2016. The ENTRi consortium kick-started its activities in the new project phase with a pre-deployment training course for mission personnel being deployed to Libya. Upcoming courses in 2013 will be published on the Activities page.

Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi) is a unique capacity-building programme that was initiated in early 2011. The main focus lies on the preparation and training of civilians that are either going to, or already working in, crisis management missions worldwide. Such missions include those of the European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), and the African Union (AU).
ENTRi is an initiative funded by the European Commission (90%) and co-funded by its 13 implementing partners (led by the Center for International Peace Operations (ZIF) in Berlin). While the first phase of the project was funded with a total of 2.5 million Euro from 2011 to 2012, the second phase will be funded with a total of 3.3 million Euro between 2013 and 2016. The implementing partners are from different Member States of the European Union and Switzerland. ENTRi was created by the European Union’s Instrument for Stability and is guided by the European Commission's Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI), which is co-located with the European External Action Service.
In 2011 and 2012, 747 individuals holding 67 different nationalities were trained in a total of 36 ENTRi courses.
