Abstract
An overview of the scientific goals and specifications of the instruments to be installed on the two Nasmyth foci of the Unit Telescope 2 of the VLT is presented. The combination of a fiber position with three independent spectrographs provides a powerful utility for multi-object spectroscopy of large samples. Two spectrographs will cover the optical and infrared regime at medium resolution and a fiber link to the echelle spectrograph mounted on the second Nasmyth focus will permit multiplexing observations at high spectral resolution.
