Recent Virgo results and future prospects

Abstract : Two years after its first scientific run, Virgo is about to start a new data taking campaign, jointly with the LIGO detectors. For this year's run, upgrades of the detector and intense commissioning efforts have been made to further increase the performances of the detectors. This presentation aims at reviewing the recent results and their astrophysical consequences. We also discuss the expected improvements in sensitivity, with the upcoming run and with the future Advanced Virgo detector, and their impact on the detection of gravitational waves.
