IN THE WORLD’S RACE TO DESIGN THE ACCELERATOR FOR THE POST-LHC ERA, EUROPE, WITH CERN, OCCUPIES A CHOICE POSITION.
The 2020 update of the European strategy for particle physics indicates that Europe and its international partners should study the technical and financial feasibility of a future hadron collider (FCC-hh) at CERN with a centre-of-mass energy of at least 100 TeV and , as a possible first phase, the construction of an electron-positron machine (FCC-ee). The feasibility study has already been launched, but a global effort will be needed to achieve this ambitious goal.
The Future Circular Collider study (FCC study) currently involves around 150 institutes in 34 countries and 25 companies.
