Digital projects, such as science gateways, research portals, data repositories, and educational websites, deliver research communities a great deal of value through shared data sets, access to computing power, collaborative environments, and other advanced tools. In 2016, the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) was created in recognition of the growing need for a “community center” that would bring together digital projects and provide an assortment of services to support this community. One service that the Institute provides is a five-day, intensive workshop focused on project sustainability. The Gateway Focus Week has been carefully designed to teach project teams through hands-on activities that help them articulate the value of their work to their key stakeholders. By working closely across teams, workshop participants have the opportunity to network, understand other teams’ decision-making, and build camaraderie between projects. Additionally, in surveys, participants report that defining an audience, outlining their market landscape, and understanding user-centered design are the highlight activities of the week. This presentation will describe the evolution of the Focus Week program, the audiences served by the workshop, and the benefits reported by participants.
