Dr. Tom Dyson and Dr. John Tull presented their findings about military learning and the development of lessons learned processes in the Netherlands and Ukraine at the Netherlands Defence Academy in Breda on 19th October. The audience was composed of senior officers from the Netherlands Armed Forces and academics from the Defence Academy.

On 20th October Tom Dyson and John Tull also ran a two-hour interactive workshop with officers from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States, participating in the Netherlands Armed Forces Advanced Command and Staff Course (ACSC). The workshop focused on developing officers' understanding of good practice in military learning via the exploration of a case study of Ukrainian military learning during the Russia-Ukraine War (2014-present). It also involved a role play scenario where the officers examined the pro and cons of the development of Joint and Service-level lessons-learned processes within the Netherlands Armed Forces.

Both events took place as part of the impact activities associated with their ESRC project ‘A Revolution in Military Learning? Uncovering the Potential of Lessons-Learned Processes’ (ES/V004190/1).
