Check out the GECKO stakeholder group

The EU GECKO project

GECKO will 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.

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.

In order to make informed policy and regulation recommendations, it’s crucial to understand the issues and perspectives involved. We’ll do this through various forms of stakeholder involvement. Concretely, we’re looking for input on:

  • Business models for new mobility services
  • Regulatory approaches and governance models for disruptive innovation
  • Economic, political and social variables
  • Cooperation models among public and private parties

We’re looking for stakeholders who are facing the challenges of introducing innovative mobility solutions, representing:

  • Policy makers and regulators at the local, regional, national or supra-national level who need to make decisions about where and how to allow/facilitate/support the implementation of new mobility solutions at their jurisdictional level
  • Technology providers or those who are planning or who currently operate new mobility services (any mode, either for people or goods movement)
  • Researchers, NGOs, consultants or other influencers

Benefits

You can expect the following benefits from participation in the GECKO stakeholder group.

  • Networking opportunities across Europe (and beyond) and across sectors
  • Access to cutting-edge research and the latest information on new mobility services and technologies and governance models
  • The opportunity to influence future policy direction in Europe
  • Reimbursement for any required travel

Expectations

We know that our potential stakeholders are busy people. We’re committed to respectful use of your time and efficient communication. Depending on your availability and on project needs, between autumn 2019 and spring 2021, involvement could include some or all of the following:

  • participation in 1-3 stakeholder workshops
  • completion of occasional online surveys
  • occasional online exchange with representatives of various sectors and fields
  • a telephone interview 

To encourage open discussion, all information gathered in the context of GECKO stakeholder activities will be anonymised and aggregated.
