The discovery of a Higgs boson in 2012 has been a milestone in particle physics and the start of a new era of collider physics where the exploration of a new type of particle is possible, which was not accessible before. The properties of this Higgs boson can serve as a window to new physics, and high experimental but also precise theoretical input is needed to “open” it.

In this talk, after a review of why this Higgs-boson is so crucial, I will discuss how the determination of its properties can shed light on physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. I will also comment on current and future improvements on the theory side needed to draw reliable conclusions from the experimental data.
