The quest for high precision measurements in rare flavour decays requires dedicated colliders with very high peak luminosity and high operation reliability, in order to collect the huge amount of data needed. In the past such Factories were in operation at SLAC (USA) and KEK (Japan) for the study of the B meson decays, and are still collecting data at IHEP (China) at the Tau/charm energy and at LNF (Italy) and BINP (Russia) at the Φ resonance. Future projects, such as SuperKEKB in Japan, already in the assembly phase, and Tau/charm colliders proposals at BINP and LNF, will deal with a different frontier of experimental subnuclear physics, with a research program complementary to CERN's LHC, by increasing the rate of particle beam collisions at a level that has never been reached before, producing extremely rare physical phenomena which are influenced by the potential existence of new massive particles and thus provide unique information on them. A status of the present facilities and future projects in the “low energy, high luminosity” region will be presented.
