Gateways Focus Week 2024

Monday, August 5, 2024 - Wednesday, August 7, 2024

Location: Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), 10100 Burnet Rd, Austin, TX 78758

 Gateways Focus Week is a workshop designed for innovative research teams to work together on producing a strong sustainability plan. Leaders and teams at all stages of a project benefit from the supportive, immersive setting that Focus Week provides. Working closely with peers and experienced coaches, you will learn new skills and immediately start applying them to your own gateway.

Focus Week covers:

  • Crafting a clear definition of your project's value to users and funders
  • Identifying your audience and stakeholders and their needs
  • Clarifying the position of your gateway in the broader landscape
  • Exploring funding models that are likely to be the best fit for your science gateway
  • User experience testing

Over the course of the week, teams articulate a clear sustainability strategy, a concept model they present to the full group at the end of the week and gain feedback.  The tools you use during the week can be used as your project continues to mature. Take the time to step away from your desk and invest in your future!
