ESport zur Rekrutierung?

(25.04.2020)

Bei Euronews wird dafür geworben, eSports als effektives Rekrutierungsmittel für die Streitkräfte zu betrachten: „Shrinking working age populations, changing lifestyle patterns and advantageous career possibilities in the private sectors makes it increasingly challenging for armed forces to get tech-savvy youth to suit up. In order to successfully portray itself as a global security provider and achieve its goal of strategic autonomy, the EU must have adequate military resources at their disposal, which include not just tanks, airplanes and ships, but also operators that are comfortable with high-tech equipment. Professional eSports programs are a surprisingly sensible, low-cost and highly-rewarding solution to this European recruitment problem.” (jw)
