 Neutrino Masses, Dark Matter and the Hierarchy Problem are three of the well established shortcomings of the Standard Model of Particle Physics. In this talk I will present a model which addreses these three problems simultaneously. While the hierarchy problem is solved by the introduction of Supersymmetry we extend the MSSM particle content slightly to implement a low scale seesaw. In fact, the seesaw scale in our model is related to the electroweak scale. As dark matter candidate we consider sneutrinos which annihilate through the X scalar which is in charge of generating neutrino masses. Thus we he have a close connection between neutrino masses and the dark matter sector.
