The study of open clusters is a crucial element in the understanding of the processes that led to the formation of the disk in the Milky Way and in general in spiral galaxies. For this reason they have been targeted by all the recent spectroscopic surveys, providing radial velocities and chemical abundances. In the coming future, a number of spectroscopic surveys such as WEAVE and 4MOST will have dedicated open cluster surveys. In this talk I will briefly revise the current status of knowledge on chemical abundances and radial velocities from large spectroscopic surveys. I will focus on the WEAVE and 4MOST open and young cluster survey, providing updates on the status of the projects.
