ANTARES and Baikal-GVD are both Cherenkov neutrino telescopes located in the Northern Hemisphere so their fields of view almost overlap allowing for a combined study of the sky. ANTARES sends alerts after a fast online analysis based on energy and reconstruction direction of track-like events. From December of 2018 until the beginning of 2021, Baikal-GVD received 38 ANTARES alerts, and followed up 32. No coincidence was found. However, a search of the Baikal-GVD cascade sample showed some events falling within an angular distance of less than 5° for three of the ANTARES alerts in a time span of 48 hours. A dedicated offline analysis based on the full ANTARES data sample has been started to search for additional coincident tracks and cascades at a 3σ significance. In this work we present the final results of the offline analysis of the three ANTARES alerts: limits on the astrophysical neutrino fluence are reported.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
