Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame are part of a national collaboration designed to accelerate development of research gateway tools for science professionals and students. A $15 million grant from the National Science Foundation will support the launch of the Science Gateways Community Institute.
Other institutions involved in the initiative include the University of California at San Diego, University of Texas at Austin, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina.
IU says gateways include applications, data service and collections integrated through a portal of suite of applications to connect scientists with resources like telescopes, seismic shake tables, supercomputers, sky surveys and undersea sensors.
Focus areas include a Purdue-led Incubator, a community engagement and exchange component supported by Notre Dame and an IU-lead extended developer support initiative.
