As a member of the Futuring Nordics research group, I am preparing a study on repair in the context of sustainable business models in the Nordics. The study is set within the notions of a sustainable circular economy and sustainable digitalisation. Transition Design is the proposed research approach. In this talk I will present the objective of the study, its main activities, and the expected contributions of the study.  Contributions are expected in understanding the role of repair in sustainable business models, the design of transition pathways supporting Nordic businesses in their transition to a sustainable business model, and policies reform proposals and incentives needed to stimulate repair’s central role in future sustainable business models in the Nordics.
