J-pas
J-PAS is a spectro-photometric survey that will be conducted at the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre (OAJ) by the 2.5m diameter Javalambre Survey Telescope (JST/T250). JST is equipped with the 5 sq.deg. Field of View Javalambre Panoramic Camera (JP-Cam). The filter system includes 54 narrow and 4 broad-band filters covering the optical range which will allow J-PAS to measure the redshift of several millions of Luminous Red Galaxies (LRG), Emission Line Galaxies (ELG) up to z = 1.3 and quasars (QSO) up to z = 3.9 with a precision of 0.003(1 + z). The survey will cover a maximum area of 8500 sq. deg. in the northern hemisphere. More information in the official webpage (link)

Euclid
Euclid is an ESA medium class astronomy and astrophysics space mission which launch is planned for Q1 2020. The Euclid mission aims at understanding why the expansion of the Universe is accelerating and what is the nature of the source responsible for this acceleration which cosmologists refer to as dark energy. Euclid will explore how the Universe evolved the past 10 billion years to adress questions related to fundamental physics and cosmology on the nature and properties of dark energy, dark matter, and gravity, as well as on the physics of the early universe and the initial conditions which seed the formation of cosmic structure.
