Abstract: The baryon asymmetry of the Universe is one of the open problems of the SM of particle physics. One possible explanation for the generation of this asymmetry is leptogenesis, which arises naturally when trying to explain neutrino masses. After explaining the main features of vanilla leptogenesis, we will introduce the Minimal Lepton Flavour Violation hypothesis and study its consequences within the context of leptogenesis. We will see that with this setup we can find a relation between successful leptogenesis and neutrinoless double beta decay, a low-energy observable, opening the possibility to test this scenario.
