Detector studies for future experiments rely on advanced software
tools to estimate performance and optimize their design and technology
choices. The Key4hep project provides a flexible turnkey solution for
the full experiment life-cycle based on established community tools
such as ROOT, Geant4, DD4hep, Gaudi, podio and spack. Members of the
CEPC, CLIC, EIC, FCC, and ILC communities have joined to develop this
framework and have merged, or are in the progress of merging, their
respective software environments into the Key4hep stack.

This presentation will give an overview over the recent progress in
the Key4hep project: covering the developments towards adaptation of
state-of-the-art tools for simulation (DD4hep, Gaussino), track and
calorimeter reconstruction (ACTS, CLUE), particle flow (PandoraPFA),
analysis via RDataFrame, and visualization with Phoenix. We will also
cover the testing of some workflows on heterogeneous
computing resources. Finally, we will show how new communities can adopt the
Key4hep solution for their own purposes.
