In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Hogan joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss the little known APR.Intern program and how it can, in his opinion, revolutionise the business models and outputs of various players in the defence industry. He will talk about how SMEs and defence sector professionals can find an academic expert to solve a technical concern or innovation within their organisation, how this relationship is structured in terms of the created intellectual property, and how the government rebate subsidisation can reduce financial outlay.
Finally, Hogan will discuss why he is such an advocate of the opportunities that the program offers, reveal his thoughts surrounding a push for more women to be involved in the sector, and how interested parties can utilise the services.
