Abstract: By the ejection of the outer parts of its envelope, a Planetary Nebula (PN) contributes to the elemental enrichment of the interstellar medium. PNe offer for the first time in the life of a star, the possibility to reliably probe the products of the stellar nucleosynthesis. Furthermore, the evolution and characteristics of the dust can also be studied. We present the GTO program which has been designed to study a number of planetary nebulae in the LMC and SMC. Preliminary results of the IRS observations of planetary nebula LMCSMP83 are also given.
