We discuss in this paper the new science perspectives that a near infrared (NIR) spectropolarimeter installed on a 4 m class telescope at Dome C in Antartica would offer to the astrophysics community worldwide, in very diverse research fields such as stellar formation, extra solar planets, stellar magnetism and activity, asteroseismology, circumstellar environments, interstellar medium, galactic and extragalactic physics. We also propose an instrument concept with estimated performances, as well as an example 2-step scenario for the construction of this instrument.
