  Design studies have been initiated at CERN for exploring the prospects of future high-power proton beams for producing neutrinos within the LAGUNA-LBNO project. These studies include a possible increase of the SPS beam power from 500kW to 700kW for a new conventional neutrino beam line based on the CNGS technology, and at a second stage a 2~MW High-Power Proton Synchrotron (HP-PS) using the Low Power Superconducting Proton Linac (LP-SPL) as injector. A low energy 5GeV-4MW neutrino super-beam alternative based on a high-power version of SPL is also considered. This paper concentrates on the HP-PS by exploring the parameter space and constraints regarding beam characteristics, machine hardware and layout, for reaching the 2~MW average beam power.

  MedAustron is a synchrotron based light-ion beam therapy centre for cancer treatment as well as for clinical and non-clinical research currently in its construction phase. The accelerator design is based on the CERN-PIMMS study and its technical implementation by CNAO. This paper presents a status overview over the whole project detailing the achieved progress of the building construction & technical infrastructure installation in Wiener Neustadt, Austria, as well as of the accelerator development, performed at CERN and partially at PSI. The design and procurement status and future planning of the various accelerator components is elaborated.
