About this event

Step away from your day-to-day grind, and make progress with your team during our popular Science Gateways Bootcamp.

At the Bootcamp, your team will...
  • Learn how to communicate effectively about your gateway.
  • Identify who cares about your gateway and potential new user groups.
  • Scope out and learn how to pitch to potential funders that will put you on a path to sustainability.
  • Conduct your own usability test on the spot.
  • Network and establish relationships with others doing similar work.

Do all this and more at minimal cost (currently, participants only pay for travel, lodging, and a few meals).

Looking for more reasons to apply? Read blog posts featuring more testimonials (on our FAQ page) or hear from past participants about their experiences (in the video below).

“The Bootcamp experience was extremely valuable to me. I have always focused on the science and technical aspects of my gateway. The Bootcamp taught me that to reach financial sustainability I need to think of the gateway operations as a business, which was very foreign to me. Learning about value propositions, budgeting, and marketing were all new areas, but I see now that they are as important to the success of my gateway as a well-designed back end is.”
