The Linear Collider Board (LCB), as a sub-panel of ICFA, first formed in 2012, will promote the construction of an electron-positron linear collider and its detectors as a world-wide collaborative project. It will encourage and survey advanced R&D, engineering design and project execution plans carried out around the globe and relevant for a linear collider. It will encourage the strong support of the community for a linear collider and promote the project with government officials and general public.
The LCB will be responsible for the science, technology, outreach and organization in pursuit of the linear collider project. The LCB will have a three-year term starting January 1st, 2017, with the updated mandate. The term is renewable and the mandate is subject to review and update when the term is renewed.
