The NUMEN main goal is the extraction from measured cross-sections of "data-driven" information on Nuclear Matrix Elements for all the systems candidate for 0 nu beta beta. The idea is to use as experimental tool Heavy Ions-Double Charge Exchange (HI-DCE) reactions. Crucial for the experimental challanges is the INFN Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (LNS) facility, made by the Superconducting Cyclotron (CS) and the MAGNEX magnetic spectrometer. The experimental measurements of HI-DCE reactions present a number of challenging aspects, since they are characterized by very low cross sections. Here it is reported the new experimental campaign of NUMEN Project.
