Initial Stages / New results from UPC collisions at LHCb

Measurements of quarkonia production in peripheral and ultra-peripheral heavy-ion collisions are sensitive to photon-photon and photon-nucleus interactions, the partonic structure of nuclei, and to the mechanisms of vector-meson production. In this contribution, recent measurement performed by LHCb will be presented, such as the coherent and incoherent production of $J/\psi$ mesons in peripheral and ultra-peripheral collisions in PbPb at forward rapidity with the highest precision currently accessible. Prospects for future UPC measurements with the upgraded LHCb detector in Run 3 will also be discussed.
