ShaRepair aims to support and help scale the citizen repair movement through the promotion of innovative technologies, such as computer aided design and 3D printing, for the production of spare parts and components. The project is also developing digital tools and resources, including an open-source database of 3D-printable designs. 

In this project, we are aiming to reduce the amount of waste from electrical and electronic goods by encouraging people to repair their personal items rather than buying new ones.

ShaRepair is supported by the Interreg North West Europe programme as part of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
