(Submitted on 1 Mar 2019)

The primary objectives of the ExoplANETS-A project are to: establish new knowledge on exoplanet atmospheres; establish new insight on influence of the host star on the planet atmosphere; disseminate knowledge, using online, web-based platforms. The project, funded under the EU's Horizon-2020 programme, started in January 2018 and has a duration ~3 years. We present an overview of the project, the activities concerning the host stars and some early results on the host stars.
