Mobility Planet

Rupprecht Consult
This is the first in a series of four podcasts looking at various aspects of new mobility and how to regulate it.  
What are the main challenges from a policymaker’s perspective? How can the public sector ensure that regulations are flexible enough to take in new forms of mobility? How can a company whose business models depends on certain regulations future-proof themselves to potential changes?
This episode has been produced within the context of an EU-funded project called GECKO, which is looking at what it takes to effectively regulate new mobility solutions without stifling the creative ideas behind them. 
We’ve brought together three stakeholders from different backgrounds and perspectives to talk about some key challenges of regulating new mobility. 

We have Krysia Solheim, who works in the UK for the bike sharing company nextbike, a private sector company offering a comparatively new service. 

We have Eetu Pilli-Sihvola from the National Transport and Communications Agency of Finland, the public sector. 

And we have Doris Wiederwald from AustriaTech, a non-profit-organisation that accompanies innovation processes in mobility and advises the Austrian government on implementing national and European guidelines.
