The elusive neutrino has been responsible for many fascinating developments in our understanding of physics at the smallest of scales – the very structure and properties of the most basic building blocks of nature --- as well as being influential in defining the formation of structure and the evolution of the Universe. The nature of Dark Matter, a mysterious form of matter which appears to dominant the Universe, likewise has untold secrets which current experiments may begin to elucidate. In this talk I will discuss the physics motivation and prospects for the next generation of experiments studying neutrinos and searching for dark matter at the world’s foremost accelerators and deep underground facilities.
