Check out the first layout of the GECKO Regulatory Frameworks Dashboard!
Since the GECKO project started, work has been undertaken on a new regulatory supportive tool that aims to demonstrate new regulatory approaches for disruptive mobility innovations: The Regulatory Frameworks Dashboard.
Thanks to the support of the GECKO stakeholders, the project has collected more than 135 regulations with different governance models (directives, market-based rules, experimentations) to build up a database of regulations on a global level. Regulations were analysed by assigning Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to perform impact assessments; by positioning them in the regulatory time scale process; and by addressing questions such as:
- Does this regulation refer to the definition of standards, or to the experimentation of a service/technology?
- Does it aim to prevent negative impacts caused by a solution already deployed?
This methodology allowed the first layout of the Dashboard to be created as a user-friendly interface, meant to support users in their search for information in the GECKO Regulatory Database.
The regulations collected in this database are filtered through different parameters:
- the case study to which it relates (e-scooter, connected and automated vehicles, hyperloop, MaaS, etc.);
- the governance model or the policy instrument used to regulate the disruptive mobility innovations;
- the jurisdiction level, at which it is implemented.
In fact, users can be either interested in discovering new regulatory approaches, or in finding the regulations defined at the local or national level.
Regulations are presented with some context elements, such as their status of implementation (is the regulation already in force or will it be soon?), their jurisdiction level (national, regional, local), qnd a short description with a link to the full text of the regulation. The analysis of regulations is then presented on the following columns: challenges addressed by the regulations, barriers lowered, risks to be monitored, the positioning in the time scale process (2RL assessment), and Key Performance Indicators that describe all the impacts brought by the regulation.
The final version of this tool will be developed by the end of 2020 and designed following consultation with local authorities in order to develop a tool that will match their requirements.
