The SGCI serves the science gateway community.

We provide NSF-funded, online and in-person resources and services. Our goal is to facilitate—at little or no cost—the sharing of experiences, technologies, and practices of those working with science gateways. Read success stories about how we've supported gateway development and our community of gateway creators, users, and students.
Join the Gateways Community Forum! We've created a discussion forum open to all members of the gateway community. We welcome questions, event listings, and other community-relevant topics.

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. 

Building Science Gateways with Apache Airavata Software and SciGaP Platform Services

Part three of a series of webinars providing an introduction to a variety of gateway platforms that can be used for building new gateways. 

Building and operating an effective science gateway for the long term is harder than you think. This talk describes Apache Airavata and its growing ecosystem of software extensions that can be used to build science gateways. The Science Gateways Platform as a service ( is a hosted version of Apache Airavata. SciGaP makes building and operating gateways both easier and more sustainable. We review several example gateways in diverse research fields that are based on Apache Airavata and that use services.

Video and slides from previous webinars are available in our webinar archive.
