  The recent discovery of a light Higgs boson has opened up considerable interest in circular e+e Higgs factories around the world. We report on the progress of the “TLEP3” concept since last year. Two options are considered: LEP3, a 240 GeV centre-of-mass (Ecm) e+e machine in the LHC tunnel with cost only a fraction of the cost of an equivalent linear collider, due to the use of existing infrastructure and the two general-purpose LHC detectors, and TLEP, an e+e machine in a new 80 km tunnel that can operate up to an Ecm of 350 GeV. Both concepts enjoy the extensive know-how on circular colliders and how to deliver their design luminosity, and the existence of up to four interaction points. The attainable luminosities are 1034/cm2/s and 5x1034/cm2/s per interaction point for LEP3 and TLEP respectively. Both machines can operate as Tera-Z and Mega-W boson factories, giving decisive opportunities for over-constraining the electroweak sector of the Standard Model. The technical challenges and possible ways to improve the performance further will be discussed.

  The CERN PS Booster (PSB) is presently undergoing an ambitious consolidation and upgrade program within the frame of the LHC Injectors Upgrade (LIU) project. This program comprises a new injection scheme for H ions from CERN’s new Linac4, the replacement of the main RF systems and an energy upgrade of the PSB rings from 1.4 to 2.0 GeV which includes the replacement of the main magnet power supply as well as the upgrade of the extraction equipment. This paper describes the status and plans of this work program.
