Data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory has revealed the existence of a flux of high energy neutrinos of extraterrestrial origin, which is observed in a number of analyses spanning different energy ranges, fields of view, and neutrino flavors. The current data are consistent with an isotropic, equal-flavor flux described by a simple power law spectrum, but deviations from this simple model...

The ANTARES experiment has been running in its final configuration since 2008. It is the largest neutrino telescope in the Northern hemisphere. After the discovery of a cosmic neutrino diffuse flux by the IceCube detector, the search for its origin has become a key mission in high-energy astrophysics. The ANTARES sensitivity is large enough to constrain the origin of the IceCube excess from...
The future next-generation neutrino telescope Baikal-GVD will be km$^3$-scale array aimed at detection of astrophysical neutrino fluxes. It will have modular structure and consist of functionally independent sub-arrays – clusters of strings of optical modules. The prototyping phase of the project has been concluded in 2015 with deployment of the first cluster of Baikal-GVD in Lake Baikal. We...

New groups from the astroparticle physics community have joined an enlarged IceCube Collaboration to pursue construction of a next-generation very large volume neutrino telescope at the South Pole site. This new collaboration, called the IceCube-Gen2 collaboration, hopes to bring forth an instrument that will further push the recently expanded frontiers of knowledge in the field of neutrino...

The discovery of a diffuse flux by the IceCube collaboration of extra-terrestrial origin from not identified sources requires a next generation neutrino telescopes with full sky coverage and good angular resolution. The KM3NeT Collaboration aims at building a research infrastructure in the depths of the Mediterranean Sea hosting a several cubic kilometre neutrino telescope. KM3NeT, in its...
