EU Consortium launches eLearning Course

Frankfurt, 28.3.2017 - 15 Learning Units on non-­proliferation and dis­armament – PRIF took the lead in the implementation of major eLearning project of the EU Non-­Pro­liferation Con­sortium, a joint venture of four leading European think tanks supporting the European Union in its non-­proliferation and dis­armament policies.

The eLearning course “EU Non-proliferation and Disarmament” covers all relevant aspects of the EU non-proliferation and disarmament agenda and aims to provide a comprehensive know­ledge resource for practitioners and scholars interested in arms control, non-proliferation and dis­armament, and EU policies in these fields. The course consists of 15 Learning Units covering both non-con­ventional and con­ventional weapons, and has an optional certificate section. 24 authors from 12 European countries and EU institutions con­tributed to the course, which is an open edu­cational resource for all inter­ested users world-wide.


The course was designed, developed and launched by the EU Non-Proliferation Consortium and funded through the EU Council Decision of 10 March 2014

PRIF, as one of the four institutes in the Con­sortium, took the lead in the implementation of the project: Giorgio Franceschini as Project Director, Marco Fey and Niklas Schoernig as Project Managers. Harald Mueller, former Executive Director of PRIF, directed the project in its early stages and authored the intro­ductory Learning Unit on Arms Control Basics.
