The Gaia satellite (ESA) is revolutionising our view of the Milky Way providing information for over 1500 million sources. However, further data is requested to complete the picture, in the shape of photometric and spectroscopic surveys. I will review the main characteristics of the IGAPS photometric and the WEAVE spectroscopic surveys, describe the main results we have obtained so far using these data (mainly for OBA stars) and the plans for the future.
