New research infrastructure to unlock mysteries of the universe
The Standard Model of Particle Physics is the best theory existing today that describes the universe's fundamental building blocks. However, it does have its limitations, which hinder a deeper understanding of matter, energy and the laws of nature. An example is the mysteries surrounding the Higgs boson. The EU-funded FCCIS project will deliver a conceptual design and an application plan for a new research infrastructure consisting of a 100 km circular tunnel and a dozen surface sites. Initially, the project will present an electron–positron collider, aiming to advance to an energy frontier hadron collider that will serve the world community by the end of the 21st century. The project will confirm the basic enablers at particle accelerators, aiming to consolidate the EU’s leadership in excellent science for the coming decades.
