I will give an overview of the post-Planck CMB activities, focussing on open issues as well as on the experimental efforts undertaken to chase them. The quest for primordial B modes undoubtedly plays a major role in this game. At the same time, other science targets exist, both in the large and small angular scale regime. An example of the former is mapping the CMB E-mode polarization pattern to cosmic variance, which may clarify the long-standing issues of CMB anomalies and their possible connection with fundamental physics. Small scale polarization, on the other hand, will yield valuable insights in the neutrino sector and help constraining fundamental symmetries beyond the standard model. I will show how space borne and sub-orbital experiment can work together towards some exciting new science.
