WISE - Work Meetings: Antwerp

On the 27th/28th of June 2011, for the third Work Meeting, the Steering Committee has visited Antwerp in Flanders, Belgium. The discussion in the Flemish city with the local organizations was another interesting WISE-project visit providing a comprehensive insight into the urban public transport industry in Flanders.
Participants of this Work Meeting included representatives of the City of Antwerp, the Flemish urban public transport company "DeLijn", different trade unions as well as the VDAB as labour market expert. On the first day's evening, the EU-project team enjoyed the lovely city of Antwerp.
