The Electron-Proton/Ion Collider Experiment (ePIC) Collaboration was formed to design, build, and operate the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) project detector, which will be the first experiment at the collider. Positioned at the IP6 interaction region of the EIC accelerator, ePIC is poised to play a pivotal role in unraveling fundamental mysteries within the structure of visible matter by matching the whole scientific scope of the EIC project. To this end, ePIC measurements aim to address some of the most profound questions surrounding the emergence of nuclear properties by precisely imaging gluons and quarks inside protons and nuclei.

The ePIC detector technologies will enable intricate measurements of inclusive and semi-inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering, as well as exclusive processes in electron-ion collisions. The ambitious physics goals and the constraints imposed by the challenging collider lattice result in the detector design, where several up-to-date and novel detector approaches have been selected.

The presentation will provide an overview of the ePIC detector related to its physics motivation, detailing its current status and outlining the innovative approaches in detector concepts and technologies that are being adopted.
