17 jun Job Vacancy – Project Coordinator (m/f/x) for the European project Sharepair
Repair&Share is recruiting a Project Coordinator (m/f/x) for activities within the European Project SHAREPAIR.
This project’s goal is to support and stimulate people to repair. Sharing expertise and experience, using digital tools, is a central focus.
The lifespan of consumer products is gradually shortening, which increases the use of resources and energy to produce new products. From a resource efficiency perspective, repair is preferred to recycling. Consumers and repairers are on the frontline of taking decisions to either repair or discard a product.
SHAREPAIR aims at promoting repair amongst citizens by developing (digital) tools for communication and data collection. A better digital support infrastructure for repair decisions will increase the number and success rate of repair initiatives. This project builds a collaborative platform, joining experienced partners across Europe to develop open source tools and data integration, to collect and share experiences.
