ENTRi is an initiative funded by the European Commission (90%) and co-funded by its 12 implementing partners under the lead of the Center for International Peace Operations (ZIF) in Berlin. The programme began in 2011 and is set to run until May 2019. The total budget of the programme since its inception is 8 million Euro. The implementing partners are from different Member States of the European Union and Switzerland. ENTRi was created by the European Union’s Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace and is guided by the European Commission's Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI), which is co-located with the European External Action Service.


What makes ENTRi unique is its set-up and its methodology. Key to ENTRi is the approach to facilitating enhanced European and wider international harmonisation and standardisation of courses, with a view to creating synergies between European and international institutions such as the UN and the OSCE. Another unique aspect is the inclusion of a vibrant mix of organisers (at least two training institutions from different European countries) and participants.

The Center for International Peace Operations (ZIF) implements ENTRi together with 11 partner institutions throughout Europe. Partners in the third project phase (2016-2019) can be found in the right-hand column.
