To ensure the perennity of the project, OPERAs has identified communities of practice and conducted user needs assessments. This task has influenced and driven the design and content of the resource hub.

The hub has been providing technical assisstance and guidance, tools and data, and both practitioner and young researcher training.
The intention of the resource hub is that it becomes a resource that will exist beyond the life of the OPERAs project.
