Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

OECD Blockchain Policy Forum

Data science and encoding technologies are revolutionising how we organise urban mobility. The application of blockchain may lead to a future more aligned with “as-a-service” models where actors engage directly with one another based on commonly agreed protocols. To present our research and open the dialogue, we ran a panel session at the OECD Blockchain Policy Forum. 

ITF's Advisor in Innovation and Technology Katja Schechtner chaired the session on "Blockchain and Beyond: Encoding 21st Century Transport" on Wednesday, 5 September. Panellists discussed how blockchain might better integrate different factions as well as how public authorities can prepare for a more interconnected urban mobility ecosystem. The panellists were:

  • Irfon Watkins, Chief Executive Officer, DOVU
  • Philipp Schartau, Director & Advisory, Innovation at EY (Tesseract)
  • Tuomas Kaivola, Ministerial Advisor, Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland
  • Guillaume Dechaux, Venture Architect Partner, ConsenSys
