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

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

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.
