SPREE project (Servicizing Policy for Resource Efficient Economy) is a three-year project within the environment theme under the European Commision’s Seventh Framework Program (FP7). The aim of SPREE project is to identify potential “Servicizing Policy Packages” for the establishment of Servicizing systems which facilitate the transition from selling products to providing services.
SPREE project will simulate their effect on absolute decoupling of economic growth and resource use, within three sectors: water, mobility and agri-food. The SPREE international consortium consists of 10 partners from 7 different Member states & Associated Countries (The UK, Sweden, The Netherlands, Spain, Lithuania, Finland and Israel) and has two sets of partners consisting of public bodies and leading research institutes. The coordinator of SPREE project is the Research Council of Lithuania.
The SPREE project is constructed upon four key-elements: Conceptualization and detailed definition of Servicizing; Methodology that includes an advanced Agent Based Modeling (ABM) approach to structure and test options for Servicizing systems and policies; Case studies in the partners’ countries and; policy agenda. The key deliverables are ‘Servicizing Policy Packages’ that exploit existing synergies to achieve a truly sustainable economy where economic growth is decoupled from environmental impact, while achieving societal objectives such as an increased quality of life.
