The launch ceremony of the project "construction and application of ultra-flexible organic neural interface array" was successfully held. This project is a key project of the national key research and development program "Intergovernmental Cooperation in International Science and Technology Innovation", and is jointly funded by China and the RIKEN of Japan. Invited by Prof. Xu, the domestic participating experts are Prof. Hui-Ming Cheng, Prof. Shu-Hong Yu, Prof. Ning Gu, Prof. Wenping Hu, Prof. Liqiang Li, Prof. Xue Feng, Prof. Wei Ma, Prof. Chuanfei Guo, Prof. Xinge Yu and Prof. Zhi Jiang. The Japanese expert representatives are Prof. Tako Someya, Prof. Kenjiro Fukuta and Mr. Kenji Someno.
Prof. Xu invited Prof. Takao Someya to visit SIGS and gave a wonderful lecture on "Recent Advancements in Electronic Skin for Robotics and Wearables".
