Prof Ji-Seon Kim, Dr Piers Barnes, Prof Martin Heeney, Dr Martyn McLachlan and Dr Firat Guder visited Japan in September as part of a joint workshop between PE-CDT and Tokyo Institute of Technology on plastic electronics that involved a lab tour and a discussion on future opportunities to collaborate. Everyone agreed it was a positive few days with the second workshop already scheduled in! The next workshop is being planned for 4-5 March 2019and will be held here at Imperial.

Meanwhile, Tokyo Tech student Nao Koishihara from the Hayamizu Research Group has just returned to Japan after a two month exchange programme visit to Prof Ji-Seon Kim's group at Imperial. Read more about her experiences here.
