  Challenging beams with much higher brightness than today are required for the LHC to achieve its high luminosity objective after the year 2020. It is the purpose of the LHC Injectors Upgrade (LIU) Project to achieve this result, consolidating and upgrading the existing set of ageing synchrotrons (PSB, PS and SPS), and using the new linac presently in construction (Linac4). The anticipated beam characteristics are described and compared to the known limitations in the different accelerators. The foreseen solutions are outlined as well as the planning for their implementation.

  The second LHC ion run took place at 1.38 A TeV/c per beam in autumn 2011; more than 100 inverse microbarns was accumulated by each of the experiments. In addition, the LHC injector chain delivered primary Pb and secondary Be ion beams to fixed target experiments in the North Area. This paper presents the current performance of the heavy ion production complex, and prospects to further improve it in the near future.
