Philippe Christ

Advisor, Innovation & Foresight
International Transport Forum, OECD

Philippe coordinates Innovation and Foresight for the International Transport Forum (ITF) at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

His work focuses disruptive urban mobility scenarios, including automated driving, and examines how car-based and active mobility, public transport and taxis must adapt to these. He leads ITF work on data science on how to leverage new and rapidly growing data sources to improve transport decision-making and is investigating how policy and regulation might adapt to an increasingly algorithmically-driven world.

His work also encompasses helping public authorities think about how public space allocation, including curb management, will change under new travel practices and business models.
