Tom Dyson Holds Lecture and Q&A on Military Learning at the Portuguese Military Academy

  • Date13 December 2022

On Tuesday 13th December Dr Tom Dyson gave a lecture and held a Q&A on military learning by the Ukrainian Armed Forces and Portuguese Army at the Portuguese Military Academy in Amadora, Lisbon


The event was organised with the assistance and support of the Portuguese Army and Dr John Tull and the audience consisted of 80 Army officers.

The presentation and subsequent Q&A explored the lessons which can be derived for the Portuguese Army from the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ experiences of organisational learning during the Russian-Ukraine War (2014-2022). It drew upon fieldwork undertaken with Dr John Tull as part of Dr Dyson’s ESRC project ‘A Revolution in Military Learning? Uncovering the Potential of Lessons-Learned Processes’ (ES/V004190/1), as well as research undertaken in cooperation with Colonel Dr Yuriy Pashchuk of the Ukrainian Army Academy.
