Abstract

Neutrino masses and the existence of non-baryonic Dark Matter (DM) are, together with the Baryon asymmetry in the Universe, three pieces of evidence that the Standard Model is not the final theory to describe our nature.  In this talk, I will discuss scenarios where the generation of neutrino masses and its Dirac/Majorana nature are linked to the  DM sector. In particular, I will focus on scenarios where the connection is coming from a U(1) symmetry. I will also discuss scenarios with a U(1)´ gauge symmetry in the light of COHERENT data and the impact of future coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering in reactor experiments such as the SBC.
