The SGCI serves the science gateway community.

We provide NSF-funded, online and in-person resources and services. Our goal is to facilitate the sharing of experiences, technologies, and practices within this community at little or no cost to our community members. Read more about how we've supported gateway development and our community of gateway creators, users, and students.

What is a Gateway? What is a Gateway?

Science gateways allow science & engineering communities to access shared data, software, computing services, instruments, educational materials, and other resources specific to their disciplines. Read more on Wikipedia.
