New technologies have the potential to disrupt existing market structures entirely. The digital transformation of mobility is happening now, and existing frameworks may not be prepared for accommodating new and innovative services. Furthermore, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) raises new questions regarding sustainable data policies. It is therefore critical to gain more thorough understanding on how regulatory frameworks and sector governance should adapt to the rapid development in technologies that public authorities are facing in the transport sector. 

The seminar presents the outcome of the 3-year Nordic project Regsmart and answers if public authorities are better equipped to plan for emerging user-centric technologies. The seminar also address how public authorities meet opportunities and challenges related to data, regulation, and governance.
