Abstract

Abstract: The future of training and education allows the rise-up of a new concept regarding
the possibility to make operational the skills needed for students as staff-officers. The new operational
environment, the budgetary constraints, the need of interoperability lead to the use of a new method,
serious games, which should become a cornerstone in military education together with the classical
methods and synergetic with them. This paper tries to highlight some directions to follow in order
to meet educational demands according to the national and Alliance’s standards.
