Abstract

In order to cope with the increasing demands from society and government for more efficiency and effectiveness, the Corps of Engineers is changing from a rather traditional institute to an innovative institute by adopting new techniques and technologies in the field of management, organisation, manufacturing and information, communication and knowledge technologies. This change poses a true challenge for a traditional educational institute such as the Faculty of Military Sciences [FMS] of the Netherlands Defence Academy [NLDA] in terms of supporting interactions (or bridging the gaps) between education, research and practice.
