University of Groningen, Jan C. Willems Center for Systems and Control
- Type organisatie: Kennisinstituut
The Jan C. Willems Center for Systems and Control unites the research groups Discrete Technology and Production Automation (DTPA), and Smart Manufacturing Systems (SMS), both of the Institute of Industrial Engineering and Management, with the research group Systems, Control and Applied Analysis (SCAA) of the Johann Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science.
The Systems and Control research in Groningen is recognized for its long tradition in mathematical systems theory and its strength in nonlinear systems analysis and control, multi-physics modeling of large-scale systems, coordination control of complex systems, and control under communication constraints. Recent additions include advanced manufacturing systems and systems biology.
Systems and Control is an interdisciplinary methodology, which functions as a common interface between various scientific disciplines and engineering areas, and often as an enabling technology. At the University of Groningen it expands this integrating role towards chemistry, physics, computer science, artificial intelligence, biology, medicine, sociology and economics.
