Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is widely accepted as the fundamental theory of strong interactions and has been very successful in describing a wide range of phenomena. A particularly interesting regime occurs in high energy collisions involving hadrons, when one probes transverse momenta of the order of a few GeV. Although weak coupling techniques apply for such semi-hard momenta, parton distributions become large and non-linear phenomena, associated with strong gauge fields, take place and lead to gluon saturation. The effective theory of the Color  Glass Condensate (CGC) has emerged as a successful tool to explain qualitatively and quantitatively semi- hard processes in preceding and current experiments at colliders like DESY, RHIC and LHC. The Deep Inelastic Scattering of electrons off nuclei in the forthcoming EIC and future electron- hadron/nucleus colliders will further offer the cleanest so far environment to explore the parton dynamics in the presence of gluon saturation.
