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.

SGCI Webinar Series

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

Every gateway has competition: Identifying, differentiating from, and working with competitors

Every product, service, or project has competitors, but how do you identify them? Do you need to worry about competitors or maybe collaborate with them? This webinar will help you identify your audience, competitors, and differentiators, and also to explore the potential benefits of collaborating with competitors. 

Video and slides from our November webinar about effective communication and audience engagement are available in our webinar archive.



SGCI helped build EcologyPlus with customized areas for career development

SGCI's Extended Developer Support (EDS) consultants worked with Teresa Mourad of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) to build a new gateway called EcologyPlus on the HUBzero platform. EcologyPlus offers students and recent graduates from underrepresented minority groups with year-round mentoring and career resources. About the experience of working with EDS, she says, "We are very grateful for this EDS support without which this project may not have gotten off the ground."
