The 2021 Project Monitoring Committee was held on February 16. Due to continuing pandemic conditions, the event was again held as an online event.
In addition to 13 present operational partners of the project and representatives of the INTERREG program, other interested parties and strategic project stakeholders participated. The big meeting gave the project the chance to report about all current developments as well as the project progress achieved in the past year.
INTERREG speaker Mr. Jego praised the project for its consistency and approach despite the loss of a project partner. Besides, he congratulated on the achievement of important milestones and for the successful continuation of the project.
Besides the successful completion of the practical test phase with the automated cross-border shuttle for commuters between France and Germany, further essential milestones for the continuation of the project were reached.
For the last year of the project, it is important to build up the few remaining milestones and to bring the project to a successful conclusion.
The date for the closing Monitoring Committee has already been set. We look forward to presenting the numerous results and recommendations for action to an expert audience in a final event on September 16, 2022.

Safe, environmentally conscious and flexible – these are the central demands on the mobility of the future. In the border region between Germany, France and Luxembourg, mobility in the work environment is an important factor. It must be simple, cheap and available to everyone. The automation and intelligent networking of road traffic plays a central role in this. In the TERMINAL project, 15 partners from science, mobility providers and public administration are working and researching on the establishment of automated, electric buses in cross-border commuter traffic. The project started in January 2019 and will run until December 2021. It has a volume of around 3 million Euros and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) with approximately 1.8 million Euros from the “Interreg VA Greater Region” programme. The lead partner of the project is the Saarland University of Applied Sciences (htw saar).
