Abstract
Supernovae are the main sites of heavy element production in galaxies. Observing their remnants at a relatively early stage of a few hundred years after the explosion provides a direct view of the main synthesized elements produced by various supernova types. While the current observations offer a number of diagnostics and relevant information of the ejected material, further progresses are hampered by the performances of current instruments. I will discuss the main science drivers in the field of supernova remnants and their scientific requirements for future instruments.
