Abstract

We have selected a sample of nearby galaxies where an AGN (Seyfert or LINER) coexists with circumnuclear star formation. We use the highest spatial resolution data available now (HST UV, optical, and near-infrared [IR]; radio) and in the future (mid-IR with Spitzer and CanariCam) with spatial resolutions of 3-25 pc for our sample. The main goal of this project is to determine the bolometric importance of both phenomena in nearby galaxies by careful modelling of the UV to radio spectral energy distributions. In this paper we present results for NGC 7469 and NGC 5253, and discuss possible observations with CanariCam on the GTC.
