In the last year CERN has organized a project, called High Luminosity LHC, regrouping all studies and hardware development needed to improve the luminosity performance of LHC by a factor five above its design (nominal) value, namely reaching 5·1034 cm-2 s-1 with luminosity leveling. This performance, which should be reached after 2021, will enable to obtain some 250 fb-1 per year of operation, to meet the goal set by ATLAS and CMS collaborations of reaching 3000 fb-1 per experiment. In the talk we will discuss the baseline plan for the lumi upgrade, the most likely variants and the organization of the international collaboration around the LHC upgrade. Finally, the first results and future plans of the study for upgrading the collision energy, in the 27-33 TeV range, will be presented, too.
