For more than 15 years, Rotor has conducted numerous projects to make the practice of reusing materials in the construction sector more widespread and accessible. Rotor's work takes many forms: design (from salvaged materials), research projects, design assistance, teaching, exhibitions-making… We are recognised as a frontrunner of the circular economy.
In 2023 Rotor is applying for an European Interreg NWE grant with a project entitled PREUSE (Public Responses to Enable the Use of Salvaged building Elements). The project will be carried out with various European partners (from Belgium, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands). It aims to support public authorities (local and regional) in the management of their material resources and the implementation of systemic solutions to reclaim and reuse building materials. These solutions include setting up local and regional reuse centers, activating a network of committed stakeholders and raising an awareness campaign.
Being an important European funded project, the requirements in terms of reporting and management are high. Rotor is therefore looking to strengthen its team with a new collaborator in charge of the overall coordination of this project.
In addition, Rotor wishes to better monitor public funding opportunities for applied research which are an important part of our activities (see the "Research" section on our website
