New research project on the reuse, repair, and recycling of consumers’ good and their components


A recent grant from Formas will support a new transdisciplinary project exploring “Re-” activities of reuse, repair, refurbishing and recycling in practice.

Jessika Richter, IIIEE, together with Hervé Corvellec, the Department of Service Studies at Lund University, and Anna Seravalli, School of Arts and Communication at Malmö University, will undertake a new research project exploring the organizing characteristics of activities of ”re-.” With single-use being a defining trait of linearity, the growing interest in the circular economy has increased the importance of reuse, repair, and recycling of consumers' goods and components: “re-” activities. The project aims to identify the obstacles and corresponding solutions to organizing re- activities to lay the ground for a theory of organizing beyond single-use. It will involve actors in “re-“ activities to work on solutions to barriers in organizing activities that can enable more cycles of use,and the project will design initiatives targeting citizens.
