Science Gateways Bootcamp: Strategies for Developing, Operating, and Sustaining Your Gateway

This intensive workshop will take place April 24-28, 2017 in Indianapolis, Indiana, and has been designed by the SGCI Incubator team for leaders of innovative digital offerings, sometimes called gateways, who are seeking to further develop and scale their work. Participants will engage in hands-on activities to help them articulate the value of their work to key stakeholders and to create a strong development, operations, and sustainability plan.

Participants will learn core business strategy skills such as understanding stakeholder and user needs, business planning, and project management. They will also learn about technology best practices including cybersecurity, software architecture, and usability. By the end of the workshop, participants will have developed a working hypothesis of their sustainability strategy and identified the key action steps to get there.

More detail about the bootcamp, as well as application information, is available here.
