On 14 Dec 2017, over 60 researchers congregated at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) for a half day workshop on Wearable Technologies that was jointly organized by HIFES of NUS and IMRE of A*Star.  The workshop was opened with welcome speeches by Prof Aaron Thean, NUS HIFES Director and Dr. Chiam Sing Yang, acclaimed scientist from A*Star.

In the workshop, 12 NUS and IMRE principal investigators presented and discussed the diverse flexible electronics research topics:

  • Filatronics and wearable efforts in IMRE
  • Hybrid flexible electronics initiative in NUS
  • Printable technology and solutions based processing as the platform for wearable applications
  • Flexible and wearable materials including low temperature 2D materials and polymeric materials
  • Nanoimpirnt and nanofabrication related support technology
  • Flexible nanogenerators and photocatalysis devices
  • Flexible magnetic memories and THZ emitters

The workshop has definitely opened up opportunities for future collaborations for both NUS professors and IMRE researchers in the area of wearable technology.
