Abstract / Description:The GERDA experiment searches for the neutrinoless double beta decay of 76Ge. In Phase I it has
achieved an unprecedented background index of 10^-2 cts/(kev x kg x yr) at the Q value of the decay
that allowed to set a new lower limit for the half-life of this lepton number violating process of
2.1 x 10^25 yr (90% C.L.). This paper gives an overview of the present upgrade for Phase II where
both background index and sensitivity shall be improved by about another order of magnitude.
