The cosmic evolution of the Universe is largely affected by the presence of Dark Matter which is so dominant that it makes up to 80% of the Universe's matter content. Dark Matter particle candidates are naturally contained in many Standard Model extensions. In addition, neutrino masses can be explained only by theories beyond the Standard Model. In this talk, I will present some models that aim to relate dark matter particle candidates and neutrino mass mechanism in the context of spontaneously broken lepton number.
