The release of the first results of the LHC with the complete set of data obtained in 2011 had important consequences for the phenomenology of physics beyond the Standard Model. In particular, evidence for a 125 GeV Higgs has profound implications for supersymmetric models. In recent months the focus of the phenomenology of supersymmetric models has changed from the minimal models studied so far (such as mSUGRA or CMSSM) tomodels with inverted hierarchy or extensions of the MSSM. In 2012 it is expected that the LHC will accumulate at least three times the volume of data obtained in 2011, at an energy of 8 TeV. The results of this large data set will have important consequences for the construction of realistic supersymmetric theories and their phenomenology. In this project we propose to study the impact of the results of the 2012 data to the phenomenology of supersymmetric models, with emphasis on models that aim to solve the Hierarchy Problem. (AU)
