Turning EU research into local action: GECKO at POLIS Mobilising Mobility Webinars
The GECKO project has been recently presented in two webinars as part of the Mobilising Mobility webinars series launched by POLIS at the beginning of September 2020 with the purpose to widely disseminate EU-funded projects and initiatives and contribute to transform research into local action and mobility policies.
The first webinar titled New Mobility Services – What’s the Consumers’ Perspective?’, took place on 8 September. The webinar provided insights on the consumers’ perspective when it comes to deal with different types of urban mobility innovations, such as micromobility, Maas, and shared mobility.
The second webinar titled Designing policy responses to mobility innovation took place on 8 October and was jointly organised with the SPROUT project which looks at developing city-led policy responses to address the impacts of the emerging mobility patterns, new business models, and transport users’ needs.
GECKO representatives Caroline Busquet (Absiskey) and Ping-Jen Kao (UCL) joined an interactive panel debate together SPROUT project partners focusing on how the design of regulation and governance models can make mobility innovation work for all types of users.
You can find the recording of these two webinars above, and you can save the date of the next POLIS webinar featuring GECKO. On 12 November, GECKO project coordinator Yannick Bousse (UITP) and Valerio Lubello (Università Bocconi) will participate in a panel discussion together with representatives of the project MOMENTUM on Managing uncertainties of future mobility trends.
