SYSTEC is formed by only one group - Research Group in Systems and Technologies – in order to maximize synergies among the integrated members and to promote interdisciplinary research fuelled by shared research interests.

SYSTEC is organically integrated into a framework designed to address real world challenges by articulating the theoretical and applied developments in 4 Thematic Lines:

  • SYSTEC–CONTROL: Systems, Control, Optimization, and Estimation Technologies,
  • SYSTEC-NET: Networked Robotic Vehicles and Systems Technologies,
  • SYSTEC-ENERGY: Smart Energy Systems and Technologies,

Along the thematic lines, the bidirectional interaction – (i) research excellence at the service of real-world problems, and (ii) real-world challenges inspiring breakthroughs in fundamental research – is continuously pursued to promote the regional smart specialization agenda through cooperation between SYSTEC and companies, particularly SMEs and other societal organizations.
