Over 30,000 items and counting
Repair groups and networks from more than 25 countries record data from their events in our database. And as founding members of the Open Repair Alliance, The Restart Project also gathers data collected by other networks around the world to create a single combined dataset of over 80,000 attempted repairs. We make this data free to download, remix and explore; it’s licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
Want to contribute?
Our community platform gives you live access to the repair database, where you can apply filters and download subsets of data. It’s also home to our online community, where we’re working together to analyse the data we’re collecting. Whether or not you fix stuff, you can join as a “data volunteer” and contribute your skills.
The Open Repair Data Standard
Together with the Open Repair Alliance, we are building an open standard for the collection and sharing of open data on electronics repair. The goal of a standard is to make it easy to collect and share open data on electronics repair between many different groups. Learn more here.
