Description

In the last decade, neutrino astronomy has taken off and collected two major breakthroughs, the first observation of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos in 2013 and the first joint observation of gamma-rays and neutrinos (from TXS0506+056) announced last summer. In this talk, we will review these important milestones as well as the other noteworthy achievements reached by the community. We will emphasize the interest of neutrino searches in the multi-messenger era and describe the current efforts carried out in the large neutrino telescopes, with a focus on the IceCube Neutrino Observatory and KM3NeT. We will conclude presenting an outlook for the coming years.
