Detector optimisation and physics performance studies are an
integral part for the development of future collider
experiments. The Key4hep project aims to design a common set of
software tools for future, or even present, High Energy Physics
projects. These proceedings describe the main components that are
developed as part of Key4hep: the event data model EDM4hep,
simulation interfaces to Delphes and Geant4, the k4MarlinWrapper
to integrate iLCSoft components, and build and validation tools
to ensure functionality and compatibility among the
components. They also include the different adaptation processes
by the CEPC, CLIC, FCC, and ILC communities towards this project,
which show that Key4hep is a viable long term solution as
baseline software for high energy experiments.
