Apologies for the delay in responding to Rufus suggestions.

I would be happy to assist and possibly run the PSI research stream.

On another note:

I have today posted a news item to the European PSI Platform titled:

Maximising the value of PSI

Since the posting I have been contacted by the Secretariat of KMAfrica
asking for suggestions as to how we in Europe could assist African nations.
I am wondering whether members of the Advisory Board feel OFKN could assist
in some way.  What do you think?
