Author Affiliations +
Beyond 2020 La Silla - Paranal Observatory (LSP) will still play, together with ALMA and the E-ELT, a crucial role in European ground based astronomy. ESO has created a dedicated LSP Instrumentation program, with the aim of keeping its instrumentation at the forefront beyond year 2020, in the ELT era. The LSP instrumentation program is fully dedicated to this task, and foresees, in addition to the completion of running projects (IInd generation VLT/I instruments, Adaptive Secondary for the VLT) to start one new project every year in the 2014 - 2020 period. A roadmap for the development of the instrumentation plan is also being developed.
