Conditions of Participation and Costs

All participants must have expertise in their respective profession related to conflict prevention or transformation, crisis management, humanitarian aid or development cooperation, and should already be or plan to be involved in planning and implementing strategies and tasks related to the topic of the particular course, either from their home base in governmental or non-governmental organisations or in a leading position in the field.

The working language is English, thus applicants must have a good command of English in order to be able to actively contribute to and fully benefit from the training courses under this programme.

Participants who wish to arrive late or would like to depart early cannot be accepted and the intensive schedule of the courses does not allow for any additional commitments during the course period.


Trainings under the civil-military training cooperation programme are supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Defence and Sports. The ASPR is thus able to reduce the necessary expenses of each participant significantly.

Participants need to pay for full-board accommodation during the training as well as for international and local transportation except for the collective bus between Vienna (airport and city) and the course venue in Stadtschlaining. Participants are also responsible for covering expenses for beverages and personal costs.

The cost for full-board accommodation in Hotel Burg Schlaining for the duration of the course is as follows:

ESDC Core Course on SSR: € 880,-

ESDC Course on Peacebuilding: € 600,-
Protection of Civilians Course: € 600,-
