In this paper we present a description of a new, Horizon2020, Marie Curie Sklodowska Action funded, research and training program called CONTEXT, or the ‘COllaborative Network for Training and EXcellence in psychoTraumatology’. The three objectives of the program are put forward, each of which refers to a key component of the CONTEXT program. First, we summarise the twelve individual research projects that will take place across three priority populations: (i) refugees and asylum seekers, (ii) first responders, and (iii) perpetrators and survivors of childhood and gender-based violence. Second, we detail the mentoring and training program central to CONTEXT. Finally, we describe how the research, together with the training, will contribute towards better policy, guidelines, and practice within the field of psychotraumatology.
