Star formation in massive clusters proceeds under the influence of the intense ionizing flux emitted by OB stars. Among the massive star forming regions in our Galaxy, Cygnus OB2 is the best available target to study these processes given its relative proximity and large content of OB and low-mass stars. We present our preliminary results on the photoevaporation of circumstellar disks in Cyg OB2 induced by the UV radiation emitted by OB stars.
