The KM3NeT Collaboration is currently building the next generation of large-volume (km3-size) water-Cherenkov neutrino telescopes to the bottom of the Mediterranean sea. The denser of the two detectors is called ORCA, which is optimised for the detection of atmospheric neutrinos with energies above ∼1 GeV. The main research target of the ORCA detector is the measurement of the neutrino mass ordering and atmospheric neutrino oscillation parameters. The detector will also be sensitive to a wide variety of other topics searching for effects beyond the Standard Model, such as tau appearance, non-standard interactions and sterile neutrinos. Similar studies from the ANTARES telescope will also be discussed.
