"The preparatory study of the BDF facility is now mature and a decision should be taken on its implementation following this Strategy update." (ESPPU briefing book)

In this workshop, the physics case, the status and the future prospects for the proposed Beam Dump Facility (BDF) at the CERN SPS and the proposed SHiP experiment are discussed.

Current activities of German groups in SHiP and possible opportunities for new groups are presented.

The BDF is designed as multi-purpose facility. A possible high-sensitivity search for tau lepton-flavour violation (tau-->3mu) will be presented as well.
