Young Reserve Officers (YRO) are called to a relevant military role due to their civilian capacities as many conflicts have to adapt to “the new level of the fight” in a Multipolar World, with significant threats and changes:

– Disruptive Technologies (AI, Cognitive Computation, Blockchain, IoT, Big Data Analysis, Robots, Cyber, Space activities etc.)

– Climate change and migration

– Populism

– Weapons of Mass Destruction

Les jeunes officiers de réserve (YRO) sont appelés à jouer un rôle militaire important en raison de leurs capacités dans le monde civil, car de nombreux conflits doivent s’adapter au «nouveau niveau des combats» dans un monde multipolaire, avec des menaces et des changements importants:

– Technologies de perturbation (IA, calcul cognitif, Blockchain, IoT, analyse de données volumineuses, robots, cyberactivité, activités spatiales, etc.)

– Changement climatique et migration

– le populisme

– Armes de destruction massive
