#04 Private versus public: The new mobility culture clash
In the final episode of the GECKO project, we're talking about the possible conflicts between sectors in the context of regulating new mobility, especially the private and the public sector.
#03 New mobility: What’s the big deal about data?
With all the technology involved in new mobility, data plays a big role. In fact, data has been referred to as “the new oil”. But while oil resources are running out, the amount of data is increasing exponentially. The question is, what can we do with it? How do we make good use of it?

#02 How much do we need to regulate new mobility?
In our first episode, we discussed the difficulties that decision makers encounter when trying to regulate new mobility. In this episode, we’re talking about how much regulation is actually needed. Who’s responsible for setting the rules? What kind of rules should they be? To what extent can we let the market set its own rules? And what about enforcing the rules? Do we need the “new mobility police”?

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?
