SLAC has been investigating the feasibility of hosting the demonstration of Cool Copper Collider technology as an alternative approach for high energy e+e- collider [1]. This technology is based on the break through that SLAC researchers have made in pushing normal conducting RF acceleration structure towards extreme high gradient [2,3]. The ongoing design study aims for putting together a coherent plan and roadmap for addressing the required R&Ds to bring this technology towards more compact and cost-effective high energy linac.  This talk will present the status along with brief introduction of accelerator R&Ds at SLAC.
