Abstract
We report on the ground-based follow-up program of spectroscopic and photometric observations of solar-like asteroseismic targets for the Kepler space mission. These stars constitute a large group of more than thousand objects which are the subject of an intensive study of the Kepler Asteroseismic Science Consortium Working Group 1 (KASC WG-1). The main goal of this coordinated research is the determination of the fundamental stellar atmospheric parameters, which are used for the computing of their asteroseismic models, as well as for the verification of the Kepler Input Catalogue (KIC).

Keywords
space vehicles - stars: fundamental parameters - stars: oscillations

Notes
Kepler Asteroseismic Science Consortium (KASC) is a group of collaborating scientists established to accomplish the activities of the Kepler Asteroseismic Investigation (KAI), represented by Ronald Gilliland (see http://astro.phys.au.dk/KASC).
