This document contains the slides to a presentation held at the 4 th ITPA Meeting on Steady State Integrated Operation. It covers the following topics:

1. 1999-2000 : Conceptual and modelling studies for controlling strongly coupled plasma profiles with a limited number of actuators: Safety factor profile (q) ITB :Dimensionless temperature or pressure gradient (rTe*, rTi*, rP*) Density, rotation

2. 2001-2002 : Control of the current profile:
2.1. One actuator in the preheat phase : LHCD
2.2. Three actuators in the performance phase : LHCD, NBI, ICRH

3. 2003-2004 : Simultaneous control of q(r) and rTe*(r) with 3 actuators
3.1 Modelling with JETTO
3.2 First experiments in JET

4. Plans for 2005-2006 ... steady state and burning plasma issues
