"APPLYING RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTATION TO STRATEGY"
In an Australian context, as Australia has committed (2017) to procure its new submarine fleet from France, a critical statement arises: "The Commanders of the last generation of submarines Australia is developing with France will not be born for another 25 year." This important statement indicates the need to look at education with a different lens, from the future. It suggests that new systems of thinking and educating will be indispensable, as new technologies will create space in which the human may - or may not - remain in the loop.

Education: Knowledge Transfer…the key to Knowledge Sovereignty
A strong advocate of the importance of knowledge transfer, Dr Bogais teaches in both civilian and military institutions. He creates (or adapt) pilot programmes to explore the education of the future. Dr Bogais brings into the classroom the material acquired in his field work to give students / participants a real time perspective.
The submarine must be seen as an artefact. This long-term project between Australia and France involves Knowledge Transfer from one culture in which the submarine was designed and developed to another. Knowledge Transfer in this case is not about translating documents and merging data. It is fundamentally about cultural perceptions, understanding of the differences and the ability to forecast future crisis, which are inevitable in a project of this kind.
As a bilingual (French/English) psycho-sociologist and conflict specialist, Dr Bogais is well-placed to advise, mentor and teach in these complex areas.
