At the end of 2018, a large worldwide collaboration, with contributors from more than 350 institutes completed the conceptual design of the Future Circular Collider (FCC), a ~100 km accelerator infrastructure linked to the existing CERN complex, that would open up the way to the post-LHC era in particle physics. We present an overview of the two main accelerator options considered in the design study, namely the lepton collider (FCC-ee), serving as highest-luminosity Higgs and electroweak factory, and the 100-TeV energy-frontier hadron collider (FCC-hh), along with the ongoing technological R&D efforts and the planned next steps. A recently approved EU co-funded project, the FCC Innovation Study (FCCIS), will refine the design of the lepton collider and prepare the actual implementation of the FCC, in collaboration with European and global partners, and with the local authorities.
