        pabilities of the IRAM Plateau de
        Bure Interferometer
   S. Trippe (Institut de Radioastronomie Mil-
lim´trique, Grenoble, France)

   In the near future, the IRAM PdBI is going to
be equipped with polarimetric capabilities. Addi-
tionally, there are studies on polarized calibration
sources currently ongoing. I will give an overview
on these current and future projects and present
a few potential science cases.
