The Systems and Software Technology Group (SYST) (http://syst.eui.upm.es) is a research group with a deep involvement in international and national projects in close collaboration with industry; EU Research Framework Programmes, ITEA and European Space Agency (ESA), are examples of programmes where SYST has the opportunity to work very closely with different industrial and academic partners. SYST group was created in 1998 and has a wide experience in modeling of software, system architecture and software processes, and in automation and tools for supporting modeling. SYST has also been involved in several projects of power smart grids, where has contributed to the definition and implementation of the new grid architecture, architectures for systems dynamic evolution, and autonomic properties. SYST has set up an energy interoperability laboratory in its premises. SYST has a strong background in agile software development processes, and has set up a Smart Software Factory where new concepts are validated, and tools and software components developed under a global development paradigm.
