And welcome to our first data dive into the repair data collected at community repair events. The Restart Project’s recently reached an important milestone: open data on 10,000 repairs collected at events part of our network.
As part of the growing movement for the Right to repair, we’re now collaborating with EU partners to ensure that insights from the data can influence future policy to make products more repairable.
This first event focuses on data on computer repairs, as in the coming year there will be a revision of EU ecodesign regulation about computers, and therefore an opportunity to use insights from over 2,200 repairs of desktops, laptops and tablets to push for longer-lasting, repairable devices.
