Abstract: Several projects are concentrating their efforts on opening the high energyneutrino window on the Universe with km-scale detectors. The detectionprinciple relies on the observation, using photomultipliers, of the Cherenkovlight emitted by charged leptons induced by neutrino interactions in thesurrounding detector medium. In the Northern hemisphere, while the pioneeringBaikal telescope, has been operating for 10 years, most of the activity nowconcentrates in the Mediterranean sea. Recently, the Antares collaboration hascompleted the construction of a 12 line array comprising ~ 900photomultipliers. In this paper we will review the main results achieved withthe detectors currently in operation in the Northern hemisphere, as well as theRandD efforts towards the construction of a large volume neutrino telescope inthe Mediterranean.
