Neutrinos are the most elusive among the elementary particles, yet they are copiously present in our Universe. They are much lighter than the charged fermions and the mixing revealed in neutrino oscillations is very differentfrom that of quarks. They are also the only elementary fermions that can be their own antiparticles. Due to their unique properties they can also have a close connection to mechanisms generating the matter-antimatter asymmetry in our Universe and to Dark Matter as well as are ideal probes of New Physics. All this makes them prime signposts on the way to a theory of flavour that not only explains the features of the three generations of elementary fermions, but also the matter and Dark matter content of our Universe.
