In this contribution, I summarise some ideas regarding the impact of the study of electron-proton/nucleus collisions on our understanding of heavy ion physics at high energies. It is based on a presentation during the panel discussion in DIS 2018 that was aimed to the elaboration of a document of the DIS community for the European Strategy for Particle Physics to be defined in 2020.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
