The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 completed the experimental observation of the particle content of the Standard Model. Since then, detailed measurements of the Higgs boson properties and further searches for extended Higgs sectors have been performed. These are crucial tasks both to complete our understanding of this new particle, but also to verify the mass generation mechanisms implemented in nature. The current status of this programme will be presented and future directions will be discussed. Although the Higgs boson verified the mechanism for mass generation for elementary particles, 85% of the mass in the universe is in a form with an unknown nature that we call “dark matter”. The status of the experimental searches will be presented, with emphasis on the search for light Dark Matter being performed here at Birmingham.
