Title: “Quark gluon plasma in pp and pA collisions?”

Abstract: Collective expansion of the created system in high energy heavy-ion collisions has been one of the observables which allowed us to constrain properties, such  as equation of state and transport parameters of the quark gluon plasma. In pp  and pA collisions at LHC energies similar energy densities are reached as in  heavy-ion collisions and in the last years evidence has been found for collective  expansion in those collision systems as well.  I will review the observables  sensitive to collective expansion in heavy-ion  collisions and compare them to recent measurements in pp and pA collisions from ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb.
