Welcome to the Dissemination Kit section of the REPAiR website

A great challenge is to sum up the results of such an ambitious project as the REPAiR. After 52 months of a collaboration between 18 partner institutions within 10 different work packages, a lot of the material has been produced. Almost all of the REPAiR results are downloadable within this webpage. However, to make navigation through the results which we find as the most relevant ones for all of our four main target groups, we have prepared this section. Here you may find short descriptions and links which will bring you directly to the source material which might be of your interest.

Enjoy scrolling and dive to the magnificent results of the REPAiR project you are interested in.

Final Event

The REPAiR Final Event was organised fully on-line due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, we are confident that participants experienced an exciting and informative day that will help them push the limits further to a more circular society.

Within the event, the results of four intense and fruitful years of collaboration of the 18 REPAiR partners and local and regional stakeholders in Amsterdam, Naples, Ghent, Hamburg, Łodz and Pécs, has been presented.

An informative and appealing one-day event started with inspiring keynotes on the future challenges of the CE from European, Regional and local perspectives. This was followed by a panel discussion with the REPAiR work package leaders on key-results of the REPAiR. Besides, a discussion with sister H2020 projects UrbanWins, FORCE and CINDERELA took place. In the afternoon, parallel sessions explored the GDSE and the PULL methodology, discussed and benchmarked cities on their way towards a CE, and discussed the ins and outs of the sustainability assessment of eco-innovative solutions. The event was closed with an expert panel discussion on how to make the urgent transition towards a CE happen.

The Final Event is added to the Dissemination Kit since it represents the ultimate material for all of the REPAiR targets, and all of the material is published on-line. This material includes the programme, short biographies of the speakers, links to the presentations which can be watched in the form of videos, or downloaded in the form of the presentations.

At this link find the Final Event programme, which includes all the presentations and videos.

Virtual Exhibition

The virtual exhibition is an online exhibition which presents the results of the REPAiR project in virtual exhibition rooms. In this next-generation experience, visitors may learn all about CE contexts and solutions coming out of the REPAiR project.

The exhibition is prepared by entire REPAiR team in a Kunstmatrix – a unique tool that enables the creation of 3D showcases. The visitor can enjoy the exhibition at this link. However, the visit is possible until October 2022. Afterwards, the exhibits will be available only within the REPAiR’s website subpage Virtual Exhibition here.

Geodesign Decision Support Environment (GDSE) software 

The core objective of REPAiR was to provide local and regional authorities with an innovative interdisciplinary open-source geodesign decision support environment (GDSE) software developed and implemented in living labs in six metropolitan areas.

The GDSE allows creating integrated, place-based eco-innovative spatial development strategies aiming at a quantitative reduction of waste flows in peri-urban areas. These strategies will promote the use of waste as a resource, thus support the ongoing initiatives of the European Commission towards establishing a strong circular economy.

The identification of such eco-innovative strategies will be based as much as possible on the integration of life cycle thinking and geodesign in order to operationalise urban metabolism.

The geodesign decision support environment (GDSE) is an open-source tool that can be used for other projects and planning contexts. An interested party may find the following information regarding GDSE:

Peri-Urban Living Labs (PULLs) & catalogue of Eco-Innovative Solutions (EIS)

The ultimate goal of REPAiR PULLs was the development of place-based Eco-Innovative Solutions (EIS), and Eco-Innovative Strategies for better management of material resources and Wastescapes in peri-urban areas, in order to move towards a more Circular Economy, and to activate processes of urban regeneration. The PULLs, as territorial laboratories of co-design, are focused on specific areas assumed as study cases, a significant part of peri-urban zones, for spatial and socio-economic conditions.

Here you may find links to the in-depth visual explanation of REPAiR Peri-Urban Living Labs (PULLs) & catalogue of Eco-Innovative Solutions (EIS), specifically on:

This visual explanation is a more user-friendly way of the results’ presentation which have been already reported within specific deliverables regarding PULLs and EIS before.

On-line knowledge transfer handbook

The On-line knowledge transfer handbook provides regional and local policy actors with hands-on guidance and ideas on how to engage in knowledge transfer in a way that helps to avoid the typical pitfalls of learning from foreign best practices. It is based on the H2020 REPAiR project and its unique experience of knowledge transfer between six European Peri-Urban Living Labs (PULLs) in the field of circular economy and resource management. The work of the PULLs was supported by the Geodesign Decision Support Environment, the core product of REPAiR, which provided a platform for discussion on objectives for circular economy transition for each of the case study regions, identification of stakeholders and areas for spatial implementation of eco-innovative solutions and strategies. Therefore, the handbook is most useful for regional or urban practitioners interested in transferring strategies and solutions in this particular policy field; however, it can also provide valuable methodological lessons and insights for knowledge transfer in territorially-focused policies promoting sustainable urban and regional development.

The aim of this handbook is to provide policy-makers as well as other regional and urban practitioners and policy actors with accessible step-by-step guidance and inspiration on inter-regional or inter-city knowledge transfer in the field of circular economy and resource management.

Therefore, interested parties may find this On-line handbook of knowledge transfer in all project-partners languages:

Publications

One of the REPAiR target groups are researchers and higher education institutions. REPAiR’s scientific results – diffused through academic papers, reports, conference presentations and other means, can be found within the Dissemination Kit subpage as well. These materials are on an open-access basis, and therefore available:

Data Management Plan

Within the REPAiR project, a magnificent amount of data have been gathered. At the end of the project, the final version of the Data Management Plan (DMP) was developed. The DMP provides a summary of the main elements of the data management policy that were used throughout the REPAiR project by the project partners, with regard to all the data that was generated and used by the
project. The DMP was a living document during the lifetime of the project. The information was made available on a finer level of granularity through updates as the implementation of the project progressed and when significant changes occur. Here you may find the report concerning Final Research Data Management Plan.

Other

For communication and dissemination purposes, among many other materials, the REPAiR project produced leaflets, roll-ups, and a document representing the staff from the very beginning of the project. These materials are also available for download at the Dissemination Kit subpage:
