The High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) project is a major upgrade to the accelerator complex to improve the performance of the LHC in order to increase the potential for discoveries after 2025. The upgrade will span a 10-year period, and CERN estimates the total cost of the project to be approximately 950 million CHF (about £730 million). CERN expects two-thirds of the value to be awarded as contracts to industry, with the remaining third as in‐kind contributions and for hiring the additional personnel required. The upgrade offers a good opportunity for UK companies to win contracts that will help improve the return on our investment.
