GECKO has supported a range of stakeholders with transitioning to cooperative, inclusive and interconnected mobilty

On 25-26 August, the EU-project GECKO will hold its final conference online. The event will go through the project’s lessons learnt and key recommendations for transport authorities, policy makers, operators and new mobility providers.

The world of new mobility offers huge potential, from reducing carbon emissions to offering a real alternative to the private individual car. But that is not to say that these diverse forms of mobility don’t come with problems. 

Launched in 2018, GECKO (Governance principles and methods enabling decision makers to manage and regulate the changing mobility systems) set out to support authorities in developing the most appropriate regulatory frameworks and governance models for the transition to a new mobility era of cooperative, inclusive and interconnected mobility. 

The project has been coordinated by UITP in collaboration with the project partners: Fit Consulting, POLIS, CORTE, Abo Akademi University, Absiskey, University College London, Rupprecht Consult and Universita’ Bocconi Milano.

Through the extensive knowledge of its partners and engagement with a range of stakeholders, including authorities and new mobility providers, the project has provided guidance, recommendations and case studies for sustainable city networks.

Launched back in 2018, GECKO has not only facilitated the regulatory schemes and governance models of new mobility solutions and business models which enabled policies contributing to sustainable mobility goals, but it has also fed into the EU’s strategy for transport research and innovation. I’m proud of what we have achieved.
