Abstract
The Standard Model Higgs non-minimally coupled to gravity could be responsible  could be responsible for the flatness, homogeneity and isotropy of the Universe at large scales and for the generation of the primordial spectrum of perturbations seeding structure formation. In this talk, I overview the minimalistic Higgs inflation scenario, its predictions, open issues and extensions and discuss its relation to the possible metastability of the electroweak vacuum.
