The FCC study has been kicked off in 2014 as a response to a request of the European Strategy for Particle Physics. The study embraces today 74 institutes from 26 countries and is hosted by CERN. The European Union supports this activity through the EuroCirCol Horizon 2020 infrastructure development project.
The worldwide FCC collaboration will deliver a Conceptual Design Report by 2019, in time for the next strategy update as a decision aid for a future particle research infrastructure that can serve the worldwide science community throughout the 21st century. In 2017 the FCC Week will take place in Berlin, Germany between May 29 and June 2.
