We consider the exact controllability problem

of hyperbolic systems of networks of Euler-Bernoulli beams.
Using the multiplier method and Ingham's inequality,
we give sufficient conditions insuring the exact controllability
for all time. These conditions are related to the spectral
behaviour of the associated operator and are sufficiently concrete
in order to be able to check them on particular networks
as illustrated on simple examples.
