  The SuperB collider project has been recently approved by the Italian Government as part of the National Research Plan. SuperB is a high luminosity (1036 cm-2 s-1) asymmetric e+e collider at the Y(4S) energy. The design is based on a “large Piwinski angle and Crab Waist” scheme already successfully tested at the DAΦNE Phi-Factory in Frascati, Italy. The project combines the challenges of high luminosity colliders and state-of-the-art synchrotron light sources, with two beams (e+ at 6.7 and e- at 4.2 GeV) with extremely low emittances and small beam sizes at the Interaction Point. As unique features, the electron beam will be longitudinally polarized at the IP and the rings will be able to ramp down to collide at the tau/charm energy threshold with one tenth the luminosity. The relatively low beam currents (about 2 A) will allow for low running (power) costs compared to similar machines. The insertion of beam lines for synchrotron radiation users is the latest feature included in the design. The lattice has been recently modified to accommodate insertion devices for X-rays production. A status of the project and a description of R&D in progress will be presented.
