SPREE is a three-year EU (FP7) funded research project launched in July 2012. Its overarching goal is to bring the European community closer to achieving a truly sustainable and prosperous economy characterized by efficient use of resources. The project focuses on the concept of Servicizing which represents the shift from traditional purchasing to service acquisition.

The first SPREE newsletter is now a fact providing a project description, key facts, a list of partners and a workflow overview for the project. There is also a useful link to a video explaining the concept of Servicizing for the wider public.

SPREE project aims at designing innovative servicizing systems in the water, mobility and agrifood sectors that will enable a more radical and at the same time practical change in the way resources are being used and consumed. The Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) of these systems together with simulations of their potential effects will be supplemented by the composition of Servicizing Policy for Resource Efficient Economy.
