Core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) are the death of massive stars by gravitational collapse. They are multi-messenger transients, factories of chemical elements, and sources of neutron stars and black holes. CCSNe are also sources of gravitational waves (GWs). Realistic, multidimensional, multiphysics simulations of CCSNe remain computationally expensive and not (yet) accessible for large-scale parameter studies. A complementary approach is the use of effective models, i.e. spherically symmetric models with a self-consistent, parametrized formulation to mimic multi-dimensional effects. In this talk, I will focus on this effective approach and show some recent highlights from our research. I will discuss novel research approaches that are being opened by the large-scale studies, and how they can be used to constrain the nuclear EOS together with existing observations of compact remnants as well as with future GW observations from CCSNe.
