The outcomes of REPAiR will be of relevance and use to a wide variety of stakeholder groups including:

  1. Government: Regional and local governments, National EU-policy makers interested in enhancing waste management within their territories, yet struggling with the complexity of this public task, and involvement of private partners, are expected to take advantage of the GDSE.
  2. Research and Education: Research and Higher Education institutions. REPAiR’s scientific results – diffused through academic papers, reports, conference presentations and other means – will be taken up by the interdisciplinary research and education community working on urban metabolism and waste management spanning a range of disciplines, from urban and regional studies, spatial planning to geography and environmental sciences. The researchers will also take advantage of the data produced by REPAiR, which will be made available on an open access basis for the purpose of further research drawing on REPAiR’s findings.
  3. Industry: Waste Management companies, Energy companies, Waste producers, Urban planning and design industry. The GDSE will offer businesses in waste-related industries an attractive and adjustable tool for improving their own practices (reducing waste generation, enhancing waste treatment, promoting recycling of materials, re-using of waste to produce energy, etc.) as well as a basis for developing a new decision-support software tailor-made to their activities and markets.
  4. Civil society: NGOs, People of the place, general public dealing with environmental issues, groups and associations of local inhabitants concerned with the local environment, the local economy or the spatial quality.
