Neutrinos from core-collapse supernovae constitute valuable probes of both neutrino properties and of the currently unknown supernova mechanisms. Supernova neutrinos can be detected by using charged-current and/or neutral-current neutrino scatterings off nuclei. Theoretical estimates of the nuclear responses for relevant nuclei are important for the interpretation of future experimental results. The calculation of neutrino-nucleus cross sections constitute challenges both from the computational and theoretical points of view. In this talk the challenges related to computations of neutrino cross sections will be discussed. Recent results of calculated nuclear responses for nuclei which are relevant for future neutrino experiments will also be presented.
