Abstract

The Virgo gravitational wave detector has reached its design sensitivity and is going through a long data taking period. A plan has been set up in order to be able to improve its sensitivity by one order of magnitude. This major upgrade, called Advanced Virgo, is planned to be completed by 2014. The baseline design and the status of the project are presented.
