  BERLinPro is an energy recovery linac (ERL) demonstrator project built at HZB. It features CW SRF technology for the low emittance, high brightness gun, the booster module and the recovery linac. Construction and civil engineering are mostly completed. Synchronized with the device integration the EPICS based control system is being set-up for testing, commissioning and finally operation. In the warm part of the accelerator technology that is already operational at BESSY and MLS (e.g. CAN-bus and PLC/OPCUA) is used. New implementations like the machine protection system and novel major subsystems (e.g. LLRF, Cryo-Controls, photo cathode laser) need to be integrated. The first RF transmitters have been tested and commissioned. At the time of this conference the first segment of the accelerator is scheduled to become online. For commissioning and operation of the facility the standard set of EPICS tools form the back-bone. A set of generic Python applications already developed at BESSY/MLS will be adapted to the specifics of BERLinPro. Scope and current project status are described in this paper.
