The observation of protoplanetary discs and exoplanets is a relatively recent and rapidly evolving research field. Many questions are still being posed, driven by both observations and theoretical developments. Discs and exoplanets now constitute a central observational field in astrophysics, and one of the main motivations for ESO and its community to build the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array and the Extremely Large Telescope. They are also behind many recent and future developments at the Paranal and La Silla observatories. A workshop was held at ESO Headquarters in November/December 2022 to reflect on the role of ESO facilities (present and future) in this landscape.
