Abstract: Nearest star-forming clusters represent the ideal regions for detailed studies of protoplanetary disks around pre-main sequence stars (PMS) down to late M-type stars/brown dwarfs. The key advantage of nearby associations is that they represent a group of coeval and cospatial stars, which will allow us to disentangle the influence of stellar and disk properties from age on the disk evolution. Veronica will present the first results of a survey of nearby associations carried out with APEX/LABOCA. In particular, she will concentrate on eta Chamaleontis, a nearby association at about 110 pc and an age of 4-8 Myr. Veronica will also discuss future perspective for planet search with the upcoming instrumentations in nearby associations. Veronica is a Cluster guest. Local host: Barbara Ercolano (LMU)
