Activity monitoring telescope network in preparation of PLATO

Ansgar Reiners

Spectroscopic monitoring of a large stellar sample with an emphasis on the CaII H&K lines and a resolution exceeding R ~ 20.000 (lambda / delta lambda) is on top of the stellar astronomy wish-list; one relevant application is precise characterization of magnetic activity in preparation of PLATO. Several 1m class telescopes are operated by ATNG member institutions. I will discuss plans and perspectives for such an endeavor.
