In times of crisis mines and discoveries always have generated new activities and new jobs. Cities today are great yet undiscovered mines of waste materials and local economic networks (circular economy).

The idea is to create a fab lab network that – through innovative co-design activities – can use waste materials before final disposal, in order to restore, through repair, new smart products or restore, by reparing, their original use.

The target marginal groups, with and without skills are over 50s, migrants, mothers, mental or physical disabilities.

Local authorities will be involved (various departments), but also networks of municipalities committed to smart cities, zero waste , agende21, social coops,  coworking and FabLab services, national and international reuse networks.
The tools: open innovative methodologies,  innovative repair and OpenData programs on waste, web platform.

We will intervene on wood, iron, aggregates, textile, hospital textile , WEEE , some fraction of organic, ecc.
3 types of business models :
Service and coproduction (repair training and new design)

Expected results: 30 centers in two years, 1,000 people occupied with an income, reducing waste and increasing the efficiency of resource use.
Obstacles: legislation and the need for strong public-private partnership
