The rapid proliferation of new technologies and disruptive innovations are threatening well established players across many sectors. Regulators and decision-makers acknowledge that existing frameworks may be inadequate in terms of protecting society, fostering business development and achieving integrated, sustainable mobility. 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.

2. To understand existing regulatory policies and governance models including:
3. To assess the characteristics and requirements of regulatory schemes and governance levels necessary to accomodate distuptive mobility services and products
4. To create policy recommendations for policy makers at a range of Levels that enable adaptive and anticipatory regularoty schemes and governance and contribute to sustainable mobility goals
5. To establish a stakeholder engagement and networking process (100+ stakeholders) that creates direct channels to and among policy makers, businesses, technology service providers and communities so as to be able to co-design regulatory approaches which are fit for purpose
6. To disseminate project findings, recommendations and tools, leading to the initiation of new regulatory frameworks and to the development of emerging technologies, businesses and operating models
