Since Weinberg's proposal in 90's, nuclear force based on chiral effective field theory (EFT) has been developed up to next-to-next-to-next-to leading order (N3LO), which, presumably should give a model-independent description of nucleon-nucleon interaction with high accuracy. The first part of this talk will be dedicated to some recent efforts toward this goal. Then, I will discuss an alternative way to perform few- and many-body nuclear structure calculation without performing unitary transformation. This new approach preserves the EFT power counting in truncated model space and therefore guarantees the model-independence of the results.
