The goal of this work is to shed some light on the link between AGN activity and cluster/group environment. This will be done based on a sample of clusters/clusters observed in X-rays and in the optical, covering a with range in redshift, mass and dynamical state. A major difficulty will be combining all available information and identify and characterize the cluster/groups AGNs, disentangling them from background objects. (AU)
