The Global Design Effort (GDE) was an international team tasked with designing the International Linear Collider (ILC), a particle accelerator to succeed machines such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC), with the endorsement of the International Committee for Future Accelerators.[1] Between 2005–2013, the GDE led planning, research and development, and produced an ILC Technical Design Report.[2]

The Global Design Effort was headed by Barry Barish of Caltech, former director of the LIGO laboratory.[2]
