We present our results for the exclusive electroproduction
of pions off nucleons and nuclei at high values of Q2.
In electroproduction of nuclei A(e,e′π) we consider the
color transparency (CT) effect recently observed at JLAB.
It is shown that the description of π production off
nucleons is mandatory for the proof of the CT signal at JLAB.
We further develop the models for exclusive production of
π off nucleons at JLAB and HERMES. We first describe
a model based on exclusive-inclusive connection. In the
second approach, we combine a Regge pole approach with the
residual effect of nucleon resonances. The nucleon
resonances are described using a dual connection between
the exclusive form factors and inclusive deep inelastic
structure functions. We present the results for the beam
spin azimuthal asymmetries measured at JLAB in exclusive
electroproduction of charged and neutral pions.
