OPERAs - Operational Potential of Ecosystem Research Applications  (2012-2017) (EU-FP7)

OPERAs investigates whether, how and under what conditions the ES/NC concepts can move beyond the academic domain towards practical implementation in support of sustainable ecosystem management. OPERAs investigates existing ES/NC practice to identify requirements for new policy options and instruments. It tests new insights and improved or novel tools and instruments, in hand-on exemplary case studies in a range of socio-ecological systems across locales, sectors, scales and time. Throughout this iterative process, it will bring together available resources and tools in a ‘Resource Hub’, a web-based portal that will be co-developed by scientists and practitioners.
