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: Meaningful Metrics—Selecting the Right Ones for Your Gateway

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

SGCI Webinar: Meaningful Metrics—Selecting the Right Ones for Your Gateway

Metrics are all the rage. Potential and current funders, advisory boards, review committees, and gateway users rely on them to assess the value and anticipated success of your gateway. This webinar will help you identify a reasonable number of the “right” metrics to measure your gateway’s progress and impact. Read the full abstract to find out what you’ll learn and what to think about before you attend.

Video and slides from our August webinar about Bridges are available in our webinar archive.



Teaching Science Gateways: A Workforce Development Strategy

In this blog post, SGCI's Marlon Pierce and Suresh Marru discuss the Science Gateways Architecture Course at Indiana University and how it teaches many of the complex skills that are needed to develop and operate a science gateway. They also describe how offering this course has helped to solve a problem that they face: finding people to hire who are qualified to work on science gateways.
