- GATOS (Galaxy Activity, Torus and Outflow Survey): An infrared/submillimeter survey of a complete X-ray selected sample of nearby Seyfert galaxies. More information here: http://gatos.strw.leidenuniv.nl/
- Los Piratas: A mid-infrared survey of AGNs using CanariCam on the GTC. Observations include 100 hours of guaranteed time (Coordinator C. Packham) and 180 hours of an ESO/GTC large program (PI A. Alonso Herrero). https://sites.google.com/site/piratasrelatedpublications/ The paper with the published spectroscopic catalog -the largest AGN mid-IR spectroscopic survey conducted on a 10m telescope- of the ESO/GTC large program can be found here Alonso-Herrero et al. 2016, MNRAS, 455, 563.
