INSA Lyon is an Engineering School dedicated to Applied Sciences and operates a fully integrated Education, Research and Innovation approach. Organised around 5 thematic fields involving 23 laboratories, research at INSA involves over 700 researchers and professors, 650 PhD students and carries over a thousand industrial contracts and 200 funded research projects. INSA has the experience of 57 FP7 and Horizon 2020 European projects.
AMPERE is a multidisciplinary research laboratory structured around three main departments: Methods for Systems Engineering, Electrical Energy and Bio-Engineering. It comprises some 80 permanent research staff, 16 technical and administrative staff and around 80 non-permanent research staff. The Methods for Systems Engineering department, which is mostly implicated in this project, focuses on the development of analysis and synthesis methodologies for multi-physical systems. The main cornerstone of the department is its expertise in the area of Modeling and Control Systems Engineering, Model inversion, and related disciplines. The Methods for Systems Engineering department is comprised by about 35 permanent staff and 40 temporary staff (PhD, Postdocs…).
