The Majorana nature of neutrino and the possible contribution of neutrinos to explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe are among the most challenging physics goals in the next decade. The purpose of the North America-Europe workshop on Double Beta Decay is to stimulate the discussion between the North American and European double beta decay community and the corresponding funding agencies to consolidate a strategy and define a path to the discovery of Majorana neutrinos. The discussion will focus on the upcoming generation of high sensitivity projects, their discovery potentials and the underground infrastructures.


The Workshop is jointly organized by INFN, APPEC and DOE.
