Abstract: A new effort has been launched to perform frontier VLBI studies in Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics (ASIAA) with the addition of new staff members. The main targets of the new VLBI group are sub-mm and space VLBI to open new physics on super massive black holes (SMBHs) and related issues. Recent observations shows an exciting possibility to see event horizon of SMBH. To get high quality images of it, additional VLBI stations are essential, and site survey has been planned for a new sub-mm VLBI station somewhere in the world. Collaboration has been also discussed to increase the observing efficiency by providing a tracking station for the VSOP-2 project. To pursue these exciting projects, the group is planning to promote a larger science group in ASIAA.
