High-energy muons colliders combine cutting edge discovery potential with precision measurements. Because muons are point-like particles, in contrast to protons, they can achieve comparable physics at lower centre-of-mass energies. Due to the muon’s high mass, synchrotron radiation production is suppressed compared to electrons. This makes a high energy muon collider an excellent candidate for discovery at the energy frontier, on a time scale compatible with the next generation of major colliders.

The International Muon Collider Collaboration (IMCC) formed following the 2020 Update to the European Strategy in Particle Physics to study the possibility to implement a muon collider as a major European facility, supported by the European Union MuCol project and the Laboratory Directors' Group. The US P5 recently recommended that the US should pursue a leading role in the muon collider design effort, in concert with the IMCC, as part of a vigorous R&D towards a cost-effective 10 TeV pCM collider.

The UK plays a leading role in the IMCC, providing expertise across a broad range of detector and accelerator technologies. In this workshop we will discuss:
* the UK contribution towards muon collider detector R&D
* impact of the R&D within the UK Physics programme
* synergies between muon collider and other future experiments and facilities
