  The ESRF ' the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility ' is a user facility in Grenoble, France, and the source of the most intense high-energy (6 GeV) X-rays in the world. In 2019, the existing storage ring will be removed and a first-of-a-kind new lattice, based on an innovative arrangement of magnets, will be installed in its place, dramatically reducing the horizontal equilibrium emittance. This ‘fourth-generation' synchrotron will produce an X-ray beam 100 times more brilliant and coherent than the ESRF source today. Coupled with upgraded beamlines and beamline support it will provid previously unimaginable opportunities for applications as varied as nanoscopy, science at extreme conditions and structural biology. The ESRF — Extremely Brilliant Source (EBS) project was launched in 2015 and its current status will be presented, alongside the expected performance of the accelerator, the technical challenges confronted and its future potential fields of applications. A special attention will be put in this paper to the beam dynamics issues (lattice, injection efficiency, lifetime, beam losses,…).
