Hi Jacob. Hope you are doing well. Sorry I didn't reply earlier :) I am in Maastricht until the first week of June. Arrived on 5 May. Things have been so busy, doing a lot of work. Thinking of maybe trying to arrange to visit the Brussels office next week, have not taken action yet though. How are things there??
