In 2010 the Government of the Russian Federation established particularly large grants aimed to attract world-renowned scientists, including compatriots living abroad, to Russian scientific and educational centres. These grants, known as Megagrants, ensure the creation of research teams that can compete with the leading world laboratories and achieve world-class scientific results. Involvement of young Russian scientists in the projects became one of the main Megagrant features: half of the participants are people under the age of 35 years. Founded as a part of this project in ITMO University the laboratory “Nonlinear Adaptive Control Systems” under Romeo Ortega’s leadership is described in the paper. This laboratory was created at the Department of Control Systems and Informatics. The priority of the laboratory is the preparation and formation of a stable team able to conduct advanced research in the field of nonlinear, adaptive and robust control of various technical objects.
Key words: Involvement of students and postgraduates in research / worldrenowned scientists / complex technical objects / adaptive and robust control
