Abstract

After the availability of UVES at the VLT in 2000, we began a survey of M-dwarf stars in order to find low-mass planetarycompanions. This ongoing survey, which currently enjoys ESO Large Programme status, provides a time baseline of up to six years. It is thus capable of finding planets of just a few Earth masses in close-in orbits that correspond to the habitable zones around these stars.
