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

GECKO’s main goal was 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 provided 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. It built on the strong networks of the partners on the project to ensure all solutions are co-designed and validated before submission. A number of key indicators and cooperation models helped to develop the Regulatory Frameworks Dashboard, with which the maturity of regulation with respect to emerging mobility solutions can be judged.

The final output provides recommendations to policy makers to enable adaptive and anticipatory regulatory schemes and governance with novel policies contributing to sustainable mobility goals. GECKO outlined an implementation plan with actions up to 2040 needed to devise regulatory approaches for disruptive innovations and identify new regulatory frameworks streamlining uptake. GECKO advised policy makers of challenges and policies that need to be addressed to move towards integrated, accessible and sustainable mobility across modes for passenger and freight transport.

GECKO was coordinated by UITP.

All final results, the regulatory compliance map and Reports are available at:

GECKO has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824273.
