LHCspin aims to upgrade the recently installed unpolarized gas target (SMOG2) in front of the LHCb spectrometer to a polarised one. This task requires, in the next few years, innovative solutions and cutting-edge technologies, and will allow the exploration of a unique kinematic regime and new reaction processes.
With the instrumentation of the proposed target system, LHCb will become the first experiment delivering simultaneously unpolarized beam-beam at $\sqrt{s}$=14 TeV, and unpolarized and polarized beam-target collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}\sim$100 GeV. LHCspin could open new physics frontiers exploiting the potential of the most powerful collider and one of the most advanced detectors.
