At the CMDR COE, we believe in an inclusive, transformative and capable crisis management and disaster response. The role of young people in achieving the afore-mentioned is critical as young people possess the energy, capacity and determination to contribute to efforts aimed at ensuring a collaborative collective approach to peace and security. To anticipate the future means preparing for tomorrow’s challenges today, and doing so also invariably involves tapping into the vast potential young people carry by providing them with opportunities for personal and professional advancement.

The CMDR COE Internship Programme aims to provide bright and motivated young people with the opportunity of joining a multicultural team of experts at an international organisation, which is a hub of expertise, and an education and training facility, in the crisis management and disaster response domain.


The goals of the CMDR COE Internship Programme are:


  1. To provide interns with an opportunity to learn from the CMDR COE community and get acquainted with the work of the Centre;
  2. To benefit from the insights and invaluable knowledge young people have and can apply in their practical work assigned as part of specific projects and tasks in the framework of the internship;  
  3. To increase the understanding on the nature of NATO COEs and on their functional and operational mechanisms.
