EU Aid Volunteers Initiative

The 4-year Framework Contract EU Aid Volunteers aims to develop a training programme for the EU aid volunteers initiative, provide training services to candidate volunteers, and assess the competences of the candidate volunteers trained.

EU Aid Volunteers brings together volunteers and organisations from different countries, providing practical support to humanitarian aid projects and contributing to strengthening the local capacity and resilience of disaster-affected communities.

The action is managed by ICF consulting services (leading agency) in partnership with MDF Training & Consultancy Brussels, Gesellschaft für Organisations, Planung und Ausbildung mbH (GOPA) Consulting, The Austrian Study Center for Peace and Conflict resolution (ASPR) and Scoula Superiore Sant’Anna (SSUP).
