MultiDark (MULTImessenger Approach for DARK Matter Detection) is a Spanish project, with a stated goal of contributing to the identification and detection of dark matter.[1]

History[edit]

The project is a grouping effort, involving many researchers in the Spanish community with a special interest in dark Matter. It began on 17 December 2009 and is funded for five years. The project is supported by Consolider-Ingenio, a programme of the Ministry of Economy and Finance.[2]

Goals[edit]

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