Within the framework of GAPS: Global Architecture of Planetary Systems, a long-term project at the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo, our team has started an observational monitoring of nearby, early-type, M dwarfs, using HARPS-N to search for small planets around low-mass stars. In this contribution we present a brief summary of the project status, as well as the efforts of our team to determine accurate stellar parameters for these stars taking advantage of the high-quality HARPS-N spectra.
