Digital tools for repair

The Sharepair project focuses on scaling up repair and guiding citizens towards the best repair solutions by developing digital support tools.

We created a tool for repairers in Repair Cafés and repair centres; a guidance tool for consumers and citizens to guide them towards the best repair solution; a tool for mapping repair facilities and repair services in the participating regions and cities; a tool for collecting and sharing open-source designs for 3D printing of spare parts and an integrated data space that gathers all the data captured.

Sharepair is all about raising awareness for repair. An ecosystem of connected digital tools helps us reach that goal.

The city repair platform as a local way to share these tools with citizens

In the past months, the cities of Leuven, Apeldoorn, Louvain-la-Neuve and Roeselare have been working on a communication strategy to boost the visibility of repair in their cities.

The result? A shared online strategy and website format, that can easily be customised to each city's own context, but that is managed and maintained collectively.
