GECKO stands for "Governance principles and mEthods enabling deCision maKers to manage and regulate the changing mObility systems"
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. GECKO is funded by the EC H2020 programme.
GECKO Stakeholder Workshop in London on 24 and 25 October: The GECKO workshop invited 24 key stakeholders, including representatives from the industry, the local and regional authorities, the public transport authorities and associations, NGOs, and research institutions. They contributed through their experience in the design and implementation of new mobility solutions, the new cooperation model between public and private sectors, and the future regulatory framework for new mobility services.
Review of Business Models for New Mobility Services: GECKO has grouped new mobility services and technologies into four categories: connected, cooperative and automated mobility; infrastructure, network and traffic management; MaaS and MaaS platforms; shared on-demand mobility. This project adopts the Osterwalder business model canvas and business ecosystem to understand how new mobility services and technologies create, deliver, and capture value in these four innovation categories. Following multiple interviews with practitioners, the aggregated data analysis shows that each innovation category has its own distinctive value proposition
Market Analysis on New Mobility Services and Technologies: GECKO has conducted a comprehensive market analysis (i.e., market readiness, market positioning and market maturity) on new mobility services and technologies. Specific case studies included: connected and automated vehicles, passenger urban air mobility, drone last mile delivery, big data for fleet management and logistics, traffic management 2.0, hyperloop, MaaS, car-pooling, bike-sharing, ride-hailing, on demand ride-sharing, and crowd shipping.
