In September 2016, Focus on Emotions lab (Carolien, Boya, and Marieke Bos) started a collaboration with Professor Li Yi from Developmental and Pedagogical Psychology at Peking University, China, to investigate emotion understanding in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the Netherlands and in China. This two-year joint research project is funded by The KNAW NWO China Committee, under a large-scaled China Exchange Program sponsored by the Dutch ministry of OCW (Education, Culture and Science).

Dr. Ingrid d'Hooghe, the China advisor and coordinator of Leiden University, visited Professor Yi in Peking University on the 15th of November and had a joyful meeting. The two parties are both excited about this new collaboration, which may be a good start of a long-term research cooperation that not only promotes cooperative knowledge sharing but more importantly broadens and deepens our knowledge in the field of ASD research.
