Results from and future prospects for LHC

Since 2010, the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments have collected an unprecedented amount of proton-proton collision data in the center of mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV.  These data are used to conduct hundreds of analyses that test the validity of the standard model and look for hints towards new physics.  The biggest highlight so far has been the discovery of the Higgs boson.  The quest continues via a large diversity of measurements and searches aiming to explore all theoretical possibilities. Moreover, the upcoming technical upgrades to the accelerator and detectors promise a further wealth of physics prospects.  In this talk, I will discuss the scope of LHC physics focusing on ATLAS and CMS experiments, present various recent physics results, and provide an outlook towards the future LHC program.
