MULTImessenger Approach for DARK Matter Detection (MULTIDARK) is a Spanish project with a stated goal of contributing to the identification and detection of the dark matter.


The project is a grouping together of many researchers in the Spanish community involved in the field of Dark Matter. It started on January 2010 and has a duration of five years.

The project is supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.


The main goal of MULTIDARK is to contribute to the identification and detection of the dark matter. To this end, MULTIDARK proposes:

To analyse in detail the most plausible candidates for dark matter
To investigate how they form the dark halos hosting the galaxies
To contribute to the development of experiments to detect the dark matter.
