Currently PSI delivers the most intense continuous muon beam in the world with up to few 10^8 μ+/s. The High Intensity Muon Beam (HiMB) project aims at developing a new target station and muon beam lines able to deliver up to 10^10 μ+/s, with a huge impact for low-energy, high-precision muon based searches.

To do so, the focus is on two key points: increasing the surface muon production efficiency, thanks to geometrical optimization of the target and increasing the capture and transmission of the muons, using a solenoid-based beam line design. We present the current status of the HiMB project.
