ENTRi In Control web app now available!
Based on the ENTRi handbook "In Control: A Practical Guide for Civilian Experts Working in Crisis Management Missions", our new In Control web app is now available!
Are you getting ready for a crisis management mission or already working in the field? Developed by Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi), the app is the perfect guide on the go, offering practical advice as well as background information on crisis management structures in international organizations. Instead of carrying the handbook, you can now simply use the web-based app on your mobile device! Working in the field without internet access? No problem! After your first visit, you can access the app offline. Add it to the home screen of your mobile device by using the bookmark or “add to home screen” function of your web browser.
Be In Control
The In Control web app is your ideal mission companion. Stay in control using interactive checklists before, during, and after your deployment. Check off items you have already taken care of and come back later. The app will save your checklists and you will always have an overview of what still needs to be done.
Test Your Knowledge
Not sure if you are ready to embark on your mission? Test your knowledge after each chapter with the quiz feature of our app and find out how much you really know about crisis management.Want to know more?

Third Project Phase of ENTRi (ENTRi III)
With the inception of its third project phase at the beginning of June 2016, Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi) continues to broaden its scope of activities geared towards improving human security in crisis-prone areas where crisis management missions are deployed.
The project activities include the harmonisation and delivery of training for civilian personnel in international crisis management missions and aims at better enabling staff in EU, UN, AU and other crisis management and stabilisation-type missions („crisis management missions“) to work in an efficient, effective and sustainable manner in order to achieve their missions‘ mandates.
Over the course of the next three years, the consortium of 12 training institutions will offer seven specialization courses, four technologically enhanced training modules and six training of trainers courses to participants from different international organisations and peace operations. Courses cover theory and practice to align specific course content with regional contexts. In addition to the delivery of trainings, the project focuses on the certification of courses to standardise the overall quality of training provided within European training institutions.
Furthermore, ENTRi works on developing training methodologies (e.g. technologically enhanced training), improving coordination with staff-contributing countries, and cooperating with the planning and operational bodies of international organizations to share and further develop training standards and identify needs.
New to the third Phase of ENTRi is the development of elaborate training packages to serve as a kind of tool-kit that offers trainers in missions and with training institutes, a choice on course content and training methodologies. This shall give missions’ training units the opportunity to save valuable time since they will be able to select relevant training material and adapt it to their respective context. A strong emphasize is also put on regular evaluations and feeding the lessons back into the development of new course content. Frequent integration of lessons learned from current activities as well as those from phase 1 and 2 into new activities shall ensure development and improvement of standards of training.
ENTRi is a unique capacity-building program that was initiated in early 2011. The project is 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 third phase of the project, which lasts from June 2016 to Mai 2019, is funded with a total of 2.22 million Euros. The implementing partners are from different Member States of the European Union and Switzerland.
