Automatic control is one of the important players in the contemporary sustainable energy transition. It allows us to improve systems’ energy efficiency but also their flexibility and predictability – a must to achieve a real global optimization of the energy system.

The Control for Energy Transition specialization is based on an advanced control curriculum that allows students to master control algorithms as well as fundamental concepts in structuring and behavioral specifications. With these concepts students will be able to assure the performance and the safety of systems through all life cycles and under various operating conditions.

To supplement these foundations in control, the curriculum also includes courses on electrical power systems that allow students to understand the control challenges of power and energy systems and smart grids.

On behalf of the Network "n+i" and its members, I would like to express my deepest condolences to the families affected by these heinous acts.

After first targeting institutions representing our freedom of expression, this time public places, symbols of joy and conviviality, were targeted. It is clear that beyond these blind attacks on young people, it is our entire way of life that is now under attack.

Our values of humanism, universalism, tolerance, and democracy are targeted because they disturb these obscurantist fanatics.

In the face of this totalitarian threat, we must respond with Education and its results: the knowledge of others, openness, objective analysis, autonomy of thought that leads to more tolerance, understanding, and compassion.

I thank all our foreign partners, with whom fruitful academic cooperation is possible, for their expression of sympathy, support, and compassion.

Together, we must stand tall and lead the way for all who refuse to accept bullying, ideological terror, and who believe in our values of freedom, equality, and fraternity.

Jean-Pierre Trotignon, Executive Director of Network "n+i"
