Abstract: COMPASS ( CO mmon M uon and P roton A pparatus for S tructure and S pectroscopy) is a xed target experiment at CERN dedicated to studies of the spin structure of the nucleon and of the spectroscopy of hadrons. During the years 2002-2004, 2006-2007 and 2010-2011 the COMPASS collaboration has collected a large amount of data by scattering polarized 160(200) GeV/c muons on polarized 6 LiD and NH 3 targets. The COMPASS results on quark and gluon helicities are discussed, as well as results on transverse spin and transverse momentum eects in semi-inclusive deeply inelastic scattering. During 2008 and 2009, the world leading data sets diractive and centrally produced events were collected with 190 GeV/c hadron beams which are currently being analyzed using Partial Wave Analysis (PWA) technique
