Abstract:  Neutrino studies have been one of the major topics in particle physics in recent decades. Success, such as the discovery of neutrino oscillations which solve the solar neutrino problem, goes hand in hand with still unresolved problems, such as the neutrino masses. Understanding the properties and interactions of neutrinos are of fundamental (they are an important part of the puzzle that is the Standard Model) and practical (they give us a chance to peek into e.g. supernovae) interest. In this talk I will review the state of neutrino research with an emphasis on the next generation of neutrino experiments.
