Hi Bart

I hope that you have been finding the mhhehub helpful.  Do get in touch with any queries or suggestions.

I wondered if you might like to add yourself to the mhhehub members map (we have recently created it).  We have no-one on there yet from Belgium, and hope that the map may help with the development of networks that are less UK-centric.  Please do pass the word around about the hub (there is a friend-invite link on the homepage).

Best wishes,

This paper offers Mad…
