This is one of the main recommendations of the updated European Strategy for Particle Physics, adopted by the CERN Council in May 2013.The EuroCirCol conceptual design study is a direct response to this recommendation, initiating a study for a 100 TeV energy-frontier circular collider through a collaboration of institutes and universities worldwide.
Studies are ongoing for the development of a new ep collider, the Large Hadron Electron Collider (LHeC), with an electron beam of 60 GeV, to possibly 140 GeV, and a proton beam of the LHC [38-41] or in the future the Future Circular Collider lepton-hadron collider (FCC-eh) [42,43].
