Hi Maire,

I think the ICT policy focus is a good and interesting one. Christian 
Fuch's work on this is very interesting - maybe we should hold a Policy 
Network event and ask him to come to speak to us? We could approach him and 
see if he is passing through London at any point in the near future or 
request some MeCCSa funds to bring him here?
