The discovery of a Higgs-like boson at Europe's Large Hadron Collider in 2012 was a major achievement in particle physics. Experimental efforts are ongoing to confirm that it is the Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model. More importantly, physicists wish to build new powerful lepton colliders to fully study this unusual particle, in order to probe nature, and to attempt to discover new physics. The colloquium will present initiatives for new, large-scale accelerators designed to study the Higgs boson in detail, with special focus on the high energy Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) and the Super proton-proton Collider (SppC) under consideration in China.
