Abstract
We present the UVES Paranal Observatory Project, consisting of acquisition, reduction, and public release of high-resolution, large wavelength coverage, and high signal-to-noise ratio stellar spectra obtained with the UVES instrument of the ESO Very Large Telescope. Data for about 400 stars across the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram have been taken and reduced by members of the Paranal Science Operations Team and made publicly available through a WEB interface at www.eso.org/uvespop.
