DANSS detector is composed of plastic scintillator and takes full advantages
of its unique location directly below a commercial reactor core. The ability
to change the distance to the antineutrino source by means of a lifting
platform makes DANSS an ideal apparatus for sterile neutrino searches,
while the fine segmentation of the sensitive volume provides an exteremely
clean separation of the inverse beta decay process.

Revised approach to the calibration procedure improved the confidence
in the energy scale, while numerous refinements in the Monte-Carlo simulations
led to much closer agreement between the experiment and the model.

The results of the five year data taking will be presented, including
the latest estimates for the exclusion area of the sterile neutrino
