Europe's New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi) is a unique capacity-building programme that was initiated in early 2011 and started its third project phase in June 2016.

The overall objective of ENTRi is to improve the human security (Freedom from Fear) of people living in crisis-prone areas to which crisis management and stabilisation-type missions ("crisis management missions") of the EU, the UN, the OSCE, the AU and other organisations are deployed. The project aims at better enabling staff in those missions to work in an efficient, effective and sustainable manner in order to achieve their missions' mandates.

ENTRi is an 8 million Euro 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. Each implementing partner is from a different Member State of the European Union and Switzerland. The programme began in 2011 and is set to run until May 2019. ENTRi was created by the European Union's Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace and is guided by The Foreign Policy Instruments Service, a service of the European Commission co-located with the European External Action Service.

So far, 1741 individuals of 97 different nationalities were trained in a total of 82 ENTRi courses.
