Summary: In this chapter, we study the average control of a population dynamic model with age dependence and spatial structure in a bounded domain \(\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^3\). We assume that we can act on the system via a control in a sub-domain \(\omega\) of \(\Omega\). We prove that we can bring the average of the state of our model at time \(t = T\) to a desired state. By means of Euler-Lagrange first-order optimality condition, we expressed the optimal control in terms of average of an appropriate adjoint state that we characterize by an optimality system.
