Abstract: The young star clusters we observe today are the building blocks of a new generation of stars and planets in our Galaxy and beyond. Despite their fundamental role we still lack knowledge about the conditions under which star clusters form and the impact of these often harsh environments on the evolution of their stellar and substellar members. We demonstrate the vital role numerical simulations play to uncover both key issues.
