The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) project explores the possibility of constructing a future multi-TeV linear electron-positron collider for high energy frontier physics post LHC. The CLIC-concept is based on high gradient normal-conducting accelerating structures. The RF power for the acceleration of the colliding beams is produced by a two beam acceleration scheme, where power is extracted from a high current drive beam that runs parallel with the main linac. The key ongoing studies cover accelerator parameter optimisation, technical studies and component development, alignment and stability including a number of system performance studies in test-facilites around the world. The CLIC physics potential and main detector issues, as well as possible implementation stages are being studied in parallel. A summary of the progress and status of the corresponding studies will be given, as well as an outline of the preparation and work towards developing a CLIC implementation plan by 2018.
