REPAiR – REsource Management in Peri-urban Areas: Going Beyond Urban Metabolism was a European project funded by the Research and Innovation Program Horizon 2020 between 2016 and 2020.
A great challenge is to sum up the results of such an ambitious project as the REPAiR. After 52 months of collaboration between 18 partner institutions within 10 different work packages, a lot of the material has been produced.

The core objective of REPAiR is to provide local and regional authorities with an innovative transdisciplinary open source geodesign decision support environment (GDSE) 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 the strategic interface of peri-urban areas. These strategies will promote the use of waste as a resource, thus support the on-going initiatives of the European Commission towards establishing a strong circular economy.
