We study in this article a class of robust control problems associated with a coupled Cahn-Hilliard-Navier-Stokes model in a two dimensional bounded domain. The model consists of the Navier-Stokes equations for the velocity, coupled with the Cahn-Hilliard model for the order (phase) parameter. We prove the existence and uniqueness of solutions and we derive a first-order necessary optimality condition for these robust control problems.
