Future Circular Collider (FCC)

The Future Circular Collider Study (FCC) is developing designs for a higher performance particle collider to extend the research currently being conducted at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), once the latter reaches the end of its lifespan. The goal of the FCC is to greatly push the energy and intensity frontiers of particle colliders, with the aim of reaching collision energies of 100 TeV, in the search for new physics.
The FCC Study, hosted by CERN, is an international collaboration of more than 150 universities, research institutes and industrial partners from all over the world. In January 2019, a conceptual design report for the FCC was submitted, as input to the next update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics.
