Thank so much Luis for organising/ hosting yesterday's event. I really enjoyed it and think it generated interesting and relevant food for thought for all. I hope ASAP really takes off and as an NGO/ humanitarian aid charity working on alleviating poverty rep can soon put in any requests for research to ASAP members. I made some interesting connections, but as came up during the day, some such connections shouldn't be dependent on luck/ coincidence, but more streamlined and strategic. I think a global academic equivalent of the US Charity Navigator (as a tool of ASAP) would be really helpful for NGOs/ DfIDs etc to find which academic institution/ unit/ individual would be most suitable to engage with on any particular issue. Do keep us posted on ASAP progress and development! In peace, Rianne
