Pairing gaps [1] in isospin-symmetric nuclear matter and neutron matter are investigated using the chiral nucleon-nucleon potential at the N$^3$LO order in the two-body sector [2] and the N$^2$LO order in the three-body sector [2,3]. After a short introduction to chiral potentials and related techniques (renormalization group approaches [4]), we present results for the singlet channel ($^1S_0$) and higher partial coupled waves ($^3PF_2$ and $^3SD_1$) [5]. The role of three-body forces and other many-body correlations is discussed in comparison with available {\it ab-initio} microscopic calculations [1,6] whenever is possible. We will also show **(a)** a preliminary analysis of the Cooper pair wavefunctions and **(b)** the extension of our formalism to finite temperature in connection with neutron star cooling mechanisms.
