The two-days official kick-off meeting of TRANSTUN project started on October 14th, in Lyon, France, and saw the participation of representatives from all project partners.

October 14th (Day 1) was dedicated to the presentation of the project’s technical aspects focusing on the calendar of activities and joint planning, including financial and administrative planning, internal consortium rules, presentation of the consortium agreement, procedures for the purchase of equipment.
Discussions continued over a delightful dinner in Lyon in the presence of all project and supporting partners as well as Tunnels’ operators and additional local stakeholders alike.

On this occasion, TRANSTUN partners and supporting stakeholders tackled training and exercise planning at the pilot infrastructure, exchanged ideas about communication and dissemination activities and Partner Novadays presented the first 6 months implementation strategy and calendar of activities, signaling the end of the meeting.
