Hello ESIP folks!

See info below about Gateway Focus Week (formerly known as Science Gateways
Bootcamp) sessions for 2020. Please feel free to reach out to me with any

Best wishes,


*Looking to build a sustainability plan for your gateway? Planning to write
your next funding proposal?*

*Gateway Focus Week helps software and website projects get to the next

The Science Gateways Community Institute <https://sciencegateways.org/>
offers two Focus Weeks per year. The 2020 sessions are:

   - *June 1-5, Columbia University, New York, NY* (apply by March 27)
   - *Nov. 30-Dec. 4, San Diego Supercomputer Center, La Jolla, CA* (apply
   by Sept. 25)

Gateway Focus Week <https://sciencegateways.org/engage/focus-week> is a
five-day intensive workshop that has been carefully designed to benefit
teams who want to ensure the sustainability of their gateway projects. *Apply
now!* <https://sciencegateways.org/engage/focus-week>

During Focus Week, teams engage in hands-on activities that help them
the value of their work to key stakeholders.* Participating teams produce a
strong *development, operations, and sustainability plan* with a
corresponding pitch deck that includes actionable goals. By working closely
across teams, participants have the opportunity to learn from each other’s
experiences and challenges. Focus Week attendees leave with a flexible
toolkit that can be used as their projects continue to mature.

Focus Week is *subsidized by the National Science Foundation. This allows
you to attend what would otherwise be a $2,500 per team event* at *no cost*
other than travel, hotel, and a few meals. Most lunches and dinners are
provided as part of the networking and cohort building activities.

*What's a gateway?* Science gateways
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_gateway>, which are also commonly
referred to as virtual labs, portals, virtual research environments,
citizen science projects, eScience, etc., allow research communities to:

   - Access shared data, software, computing services, instruments, and
   other resources
   - Collaborate with their community around a research topic or discipline
   - Provide training and education materials to a community
