An Electron Ion-Collider (EIC) has been highlighted as the highest priority for new construction in the DoE Office of Nuclear Physics. This is a very challenging accelerator that aims at achieving high luminosity and polarization collisions of electrons with multiple ions species and variable center of mass.
Alternative designs are pursued at Jefferson Laboratory (JLEIC) and Brookhaven National Laboratory (eRHIC) each capitalizing on the existing CEBAF and RHIC facilities respectively. I will overview the design options at JLAB and BNL, the accelerator R&D necessary to validate the designs and will explore areas of potential synergy and collaboration.
