Fredagskollokvium: The Milky Way as a galaxy - prospects from Gaia and upcoming large spectroscopic surveys

Sofia Felting, Professor of astronomy, Lund Observatory, Sweden

 In this talk I will give a comprehensive background till why we want to study the Milky Way in great detail in order to constrain formation and evolution models of sprial galaxies in general, sometimes refered to as near-field cosmology. The impact of Gaia and the need of massive ground-based spectroscopic surveys will be covered as well as a discussion of recent highlights from several of the on-going survyes.
