E3: IAA ESRC EPSRC: The Repair Shop 2049: Exploring the Role of Physical-Digital Technologies in Shaping Future Local Sustainable Repair Ecosystems

Project: Research



ESRC: £7,213.50
EPSRC: £7,213.50

Working in collaboration with our community partner The Making Rooms Blackburn, this IAA ESRC EPSRC funded project will focus on the limitations of the recently implemented Right-to-Repair legislation which does not account for the repair of Internet of Things (IoT) devices whose unsustainable disposal actively contributes to electronic waste and material scarcity. Using the notion of a future high street ‘Repair Shop’ as its lens, the project will bring together community stakeholders to collectively envision pathways for developing new localised device repair ecosystems and circular economies.
