Title: Research and Development of Wires and Cables for High-Field Accelerator Magnets

The latest strategic plans for High Energy Physics endorse steadfast superconducting magnet technology R&D for future Energy Frontier Facilities. This includes 10 to 16 T Nb3Sn accelerator magnets for the luminosity upgrades of the Large Hadron Collider and eventually for a future 100 TeV scale proton-proton $(pp)$ collider. This paper describes the multi-decade R&D investment in the $$Nb_3Sn$$ superconductor technology, which was crucial to produce the first reproducible 10 to 12 T accelerator-quality dipoles and quadrupoles, as well as their scale-up. We also indicate prospective research areas in superconducting $$Nb_3Sn$$ wires and cables to achieve the next goals for superconducting accelerator magnets. Emphasis is on increasing performance and decreasing costs while pushing the $$Nb_3Sn$$ technology to its limits for future $pp$ colliders.
