Vicenç Puig, Education Liaison for IFAC TC 6.4. Fault Detection, Supervision & Safety of Techn. Processes - SAFEPROCESS
"I can promote the importance to link the research that is being done in the TC6.4 (Supervision and Fault Diagnosis) to the teaching activities in the Academia. In fact, this area is very new and not many Universities are offering courses related with Supervision and Fault Diagnosis."

Carlos Ocampo-Martinez, Education Liaison for IFAC TC 8.3. Modelling and Control of Environmental Systems
"This TC aims at performing exciting research in all topics related to air, land and water (environmental systems), how they are represented, modeled and how we can manage them in such a way they can be exploited efficiently, taking care of the influence of the society over them. In few works, we develop methodologies for describing how the environmental systems behave and, according to global and/or particular problems and objectives, how to design control strategies applied to them. For instance, most of our researchers work on water, in order to know the main problems of this important resource and then proposing the way, techniques and tools for solving those problems and ensuring the proper exploitation."
