Today eReuse.org’s community are refurbishers and reusers, many of them working for social inclusion, university service-learning programs, donations programs to charities, recycling companies, public administrations and IT companies providing services to the eReuse.org community. We we want to include many more to cope with the full device life cycle, such as maintenance, repair, end-user support, leasing and insurance.
The technology development and services are sustained from members contributions, research institutions and social and development entities.
