In October 2010 Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin received funding to design and build the Berlin Energy Recovery Linac Project BERLinPro. The goal of this compact ERL is to develop the accelerator physics and technology required to generate and accelerate a 100-mA, 1 mm·mrad emittance beam. Given the flexibility of ERLs, other operation modes such as short-bunch operation will also be investigated. The BERLinPro technology and know-how can then be transferred to a variety of ERL-based applications. Presently, BERLinPro is in the design phase and the optics has been settled. Furthermore, first beam has been achieved with a superconducting RF photoinjector, which represents an important step towards realizing a CW injector for BERLinPro. An overview of the present status and the conceptual design report is presented.
