The CMS Precision Proton Spectrometer (PPS) project has operated
forward proton detectors in the harsh near-beam environment of the LHC
since 2016, with a leading contribution by LIP. The physics goals
include the study of Electroweak and possible Beyond Standard Model physics 
in photon-photon interactions, exploiting the unprecedented energies and
luminosities offered by the LHC.

In this talk, the physics results obtained with the existing Run 2 LHC data, 
and the preparations for the upcoming Run 3, are reviewed. Finally, a new
upgrade proposal for PPS at the High-Luminosity LHC, scheduled to begin
operations in 2027, is presented.
