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 success stories 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.

SGCI Webinar Series

SGCI hosts a free webinar series on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific time.  

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud for Gateways

AWS helps researchers process complex workloads by providing the cost-effective, scalable and secure compute storage and database capabilities needed to accelerate time-to-science and produce science gateways. With AWS, scientists can quickly analyze massive data pipelines, store petabytes of data, and share their results with collaborators around the world, focusing on science, not servers. 

Video and slides from our September webinar about metrics are available in our webinar archive.
