The high intensity frontier in accelerator science drives development in fields as varying as neutrino physics, material science and life sciences with neutrons, rare decays searches and transmutation. The accelerators used can broadly be divided into high average intensity hadron machines, high instantaneous intensity hadron machines and high intensity electron/positron machines. I will give an overview of the main facilities in the word and the discuss in some detail the design of the high average intensity proton accelerator for the European Spallation Source which soon will be under construction in Lund in Sweden.
