In the next 10 years we will learn much about the Epoch of Reionization (EoR). Indeed several radio-interferometers have already started collecting data, looking for the redshifted 21cm signal emitted by the neutral IGM during this era in the history of the Universe (LOFAR, GMRT, MWA, 21CMA&). While these first generation instruments aim at a statistical detection, by the end of the decade, the SKA should start imaging the IGM in 3D. At the same time, new telescopes such as the E-ELT or the JWST will probe deeper into the EoR to detect galaxies at z> 10.
