Circular Makerspaces

The Circular Makespaces project sought to understand the opportunities for makespaces to play a role in a future distributed circular economy by focusing on circular practices. It was one of two ‘level 1’ feasibility studies undertaken as a sub-project of the Future Makespaces in Redistributed Manufacturing project based on the RCA and funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
