Peter Snoeren, alderman in the municipality of Nieuwegein (lead partner of Labour Plus) welcomed the participants. He highlighted the fact that, at the start of Labour Plus, the diversity of partners had been a challenge. But 3 years later, this diversity proved to be the exact strength and added value of the project.
