The KM3NeT Collaboration is currently constructing the next generation of large-volume (km3-size) Cherenkov neutrino telescopes in the Mediterranean Sea.
KM3NeT/ARCA (Astroparticle Research with Cosmics in the Abyss), located offshore the Sicilian coast is optimised to measure high-energy neutrinos, above 100 GeV, of astrophysical origin. It will provide an optimal view of the Southern sky including the Galactic Center and enable for the first time, precision all flavour neutrino astronomy.
KM3NeT/ORCA (Oscillation Research with Cosmics in the Abyss), located offshore the French coast, is optimised to detect atmospheric neutrinos in the GeV range. Its main goal is a determination of the neutrino mass ordering and measurement of neutrino oscillation parameters. The detector is also sensitive to a wide variety of other physics topics, such as dark matter, non-standard interactions and sterile neutrinos.
The two detectors share the same innovative technology. The first Detection Units have been operated in the French and Italian sites. We will present results from the first data together with the status and the science perspectives of the project.
