Dark-matter detectors, in particular double-phase noble-gas TPCs, start to become sensitive to a series of neutrino signals, such as solar $pp, {}^{8}B$ neutrinos, and supernova neutrinos. They are also sensitive to very rare events, such as the double electron capture of ${}^{124}Xe$, and a competitive search for neutrinoless double-beta decay may be possible with future dark matter detectors. Neutrinos are the ultimate source of background for the dark matter experiment, but can also represent an effective way to calibrate the response of very large future detectors. I will emphasize the complementarity of these approaches while sketching possible synergies between neutrino and dark-matter experiments.
