Experimental studies of low-energy kaons interactions with nuclear matter give vital information for understanding the QCD in non-perturbative regime, having a strong impact in particle and nuclear physics and in astrophysics (equation of state for neutron stars). I shall present the achieved results and future plans for the SIDDHARTA experiment at the DAFNE collider of LNF-INFN, showing how the excellent quality kaon beam delivered by DAFNE combined with high-performance spectroscopic Silicon Drift Detectors allows performing unprecedented measurements of kaonic atoms transitions. I shall also present results from the AMADEUS collaboration regarding studies of low-energy kaons interacting with various nuclei.
