LAUNCH EVENT: GECKO

Governance principles and mEthods enabling deCision maKers to manage and regulate the changing mObility systems

The rapid proliferation of new technologies and disruptive innovations are taking the world by storm, threatening well established players across many sectors. Regulators and decision-makers at different levels of government are overwhelmed by the challenge, acknowledging that existing frameworks may be inadequate in terms of protecting society, fostering business development and achieving integrated, sustainable mobility.

GECKO’s main goal is to support authorities with tools and recommendations for new regulatory frameworks to lead the transition to the new mobility era of cooperative, inclusive, competitive, sustainable and interconnected mobility across all modes, through evidence-based research.

GECKO provides a holistic approach with innovative concepts, methodologies and forward-looking tools to enable this transition to take place, leading to new, adaptive and anticipatory regulatory schemes and balanced governance.

The project aims to build on the strong networks of its partners to ensure solutions are co-designed and validated. A number of key indicators and cooperation models will help to develop the Regulatory Frameworks Dashboard, though which the maturity of given regulations can be judged with respect to emerging mobility solutions.

GECKO will outline an implementation plan including actions required up to 2040 for policy makers to devise regulatory approaches for disruptive innovations and new regulatory frameworks streamlining uptake. GECKO will advise policy makers on challenges and policies that need to be addressed to move towards integrated, accessible and sustainable mobility across modes for both passenger and freight transport.

The project will provide recommendations to policy makers to enable adaptive and anticipatory regulatory schemes and governance with novel policies that contribute to sustainable mobility goals.
