Gaia: A Major Step in the Knowledge of Our Galaxy
In this contribution I present the main research activities of the IAC “Stellar Populations in Galaxies” research group, with emphasis on the subtopics directly related with the study of the evolution of nearby galaxies. In particular, I discuss preliminary results of ongoing research on the Magellanic Clouds using deep ground-based observations, and on a sample of isolated Local Group dwarf galaxies, using data from the ACS on board the HST. Future plans with the GTC are discussed.
