The Science Gateways Community Institute’s Incubator [1] team is offering an intensive Bootcamp that will take place October 2-6, 2017 at the Purdue Research Park of Indianapolis, IN.

Science Gateways Bootcamp: Strategies for Developing, Operating, and Sustaining Your Gateway [2] is designed for leaders of innovative digital offerings, sometimes called gateways, who are seeking to further develop and scale their work.

Participants will engage in hands-on activities to help them articulate the value of their work to key stakeholders and to create a strong development, operations, and sustainability plan. The Bootcamp will include:

- Core business strategy skills
- Technology best practices
- Long-term sustainability strategies
- Basic usability training

By the end of the Bootcamp, participants will have developed a working hypothesis of their sustainability strategy and identified the key action steps to get there. Participants will also have developed the skills needed to conduct basic usability tests on their gateways.

We will be selecting 6-10 teams to participate based on their potential to deliver significant value to the community, and it is expected that the session will fill quickly. There is no cost to participate in the Bootcamp and most meals are included. Attendees will need to pay for travel, hotel, and a couple of meals.


The workshop will be led by:
Michael Zentner: Director of the SGCI Incubator, Senior Research Scientist and Director of HUBzero Platform for Science and Engineering, Entrepreneur in Residence at the Purdue Foundry
Juliana Casavan: Entrepreneurial Programs Manager, The Foundry, Purdue University
Sandra Gesing: Research assistant professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering and computational scientist, Center for Research Computing, University of Notre Dame
Randy Heiland: Senior Systems Analyst/Programmer, Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research (CACR), Indiana University, Bloomington
Nancy Maron: Founder and Principal, BlueSky to BluePrint
Suresh Marru: Deputy director of the Science Gateway Research Center at Indiana University and vice president of the Apache Airavata project.
