Increasing the Repair of Goods: Barriers, Enablers, and Solutions

By increasing repair activities, environmental, employment, and economic benefits can be achieved. Barriers to repair should be removed and facilitators strengthened. The project recommends, among other things, the development of training for repair professionals, support for establishing a network of repair companies, the introduction of repair vouchers, communication about repair services, and directing R&D funding towards the development of repair service concepts.
