LIULHC Injectors Upgrade
LIU plans to deliver reliably to the LHC the beams required to reach the goals of the HL-LHC. This includes LINAC4, the PS booster, the PS, the SPS, as well as the heavy ion chain.



FCCFuture Circular Collider
The Future Circular Collider (FCC) design study explores options for accelerator projects in a global context, with emphasis on proton-proton and electron-positron high-energy frontier machines. These design studies are coupled to a vigorous accelerator R&D programme, including high-field magnets and high-gradient accelerating structures, in collaboration with national institutes, laboratories and universities worldwide.




European Projects


ARIESAccelerator Research And Innovation For European Science And Society
ARIES is an Integrating Activity project which aims to develop European particle accelerator infrastructures, co-funded under the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. Over four years, ARIES will work towards improving the performance, availability, and sustainability of particle accelerators, transferring the benefits and applications of accelerator technology to both science and society, and enlarging and integrating the European accelerator community.  




QUACOQuadrupole Corrector
The QUACO project is a part of the IR magnets in HL-LHC and has as objective the production of the first two First-of-a-kind HL-LHC “two-in-one quadrupoles magnets".  



TIARATest Infrastructure and Accelerator Research Area
The main objective of TIARA is the integration of national and international accelerator R&D infrastructures into a single distributed European accelerator R&D facility. This will include the implementation of organisational structures to combine existing individual infrastructures, ensuring their efficient operation and upgrades, and the construction of new infrastructures as part of TIARA.


Past Projects


EuCARDEuropean Coordination for Accelerator Research & Development
EuCARD is a common venture of 37 European Accelerator Laboratories, Institutes, Universities and Industrial Partners involved in accelerator sciences and technologies. The project, initiated by ESGARD, is an Integrating Activity co-funded by the European Commission under Framework Programme 7 for a duration of four years, starting April 1st, 2009.  



EuCARD-2Enhanced European Coordination for Accelerator Research & Development
EuCARD-2 will contribute to positioning European accelerator infrastructures at the forefront of global research, by building the next generation of particle accelerators. EuCARD-2 will explore ways to develop smaller, more powerful, efficient and smarter accelerators for the benefit of both science and society.  



HiLumi LHC Design StudyHigh Luminosity Large Hadron Collider Design Study
HiLumi LHC is an FP7 Design Study and part of an overall project that will federate efforts and R&D of a large community towards the ambitious HL-LHC objectives. HiLumi LHC involves participants from outside the European Research Area (ERA), in particular leading US and Japanese laboratories, which will facilitate the implementation of the construction phase as a global project. The proposed governance model is tailored accordingly and may pave the way for the organization of other global research infrastructures.  



sLHCsuper LHC
The sLHC project (super LHC) aims for a tenfold increase in luminosity for 14 TeV proton–proton collisions, achieved through the successive implementation of several new elements and technical improvements that are scheduled for 2013–2018. These include the major replacement of several accelerators in the LHC proton-injector chain, upgrades of the LHC interaction regions and enhancements to the general-purpose experiments ATLAS and CMS. The accelerator part of the sLHC project consists of a set of sub-projects that fall into three categories: sLHC construction projects, sLHC project preparation studies and an sLHC luminosity upgrade network.  


International Projects


LARPU.S. LHC Accelerator Research Program
LARP consists of four US laboratories: BNL, FNAL, LBNL, SLAC, who collaborate with CERN in the context of HL-LHC on the Large Hadron Collider to increase luminosity in the interaction regions and to use, develop, and preserve unique U.S. resources and capabilities.
