The recent Fermilab result has confirmed the long standing discrepancy between the direct measurement and the Standard Model (SM) prediction of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon aμ=(gµ-2)/2. The possibility to improve the SM prediction using data-driven approaches has motivated the BESIII collaboration to embark on a dedicated experimental program. The high statistics data samples collected with the BESIII experiment in e+e- collisions in the tau-charm region are analyzed exploiting the initial state radiation technique in order to measure hadronic cross sections needed in the dispersive analysis of the hadronic vacuum polarization contribution to aμ. The same data enable investigations of two-photon collisions. These allow the determination of the momentum dependence of transition form factors of light mesons in the relevant kinematic region, which dominate the hadronic Light-by-Light contribution to aµ. The current status and ongoing investigations will be discussed.
