Observation of supernovae (SN) through their neutrino emission is a fundamental point to understand both SN dynamics and neutrino physical properties. JUNO is a 20kton liquid scintillator detector, under construction in Jiangmen, China. The main aim of the experiment is to determine neutrino mass hierarchy by precisely measuring the energy spectrum of reactor electron antineutrinos. However due to its properties, JUNO has the capability of detecting a high statistics of SN events too. Existing data from SN neutrino consists only of 24 events coming from the SN 1987A,the detection of a SN burst in JUNO at ~ 10kpc will yield ~ 5x103 inverse beta decay (IBD) events from electron antineutrinos, about 1500 from proton elastic scattering (pES) above the threshold of 0.2 MeV, about 400 from electron elastic scattering (eES), plus several hundreds on other CC and NC interaction channels from all neutrino species.
