The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded a $5 million, five-year collaborative grant to Indiana University, the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) to develop the Science Gateway Platform (SciGaP). The platform, which will provide researchers with a variety of hosted services that support science gateways, will further scientific discovery and transform science gateway construction.
Marlon Pierce of the Science Gateways Group is the principal investigator (PI), along with Suresh Marru as the IU co-PI. Mark Miller and Amit Majumdar from the SDSC and Borries Demeler from the UTHSCSA will hold similar roles at their institutions. As lead institution on the grant, IU will receive approximately $2.5 million over the five-year period.
“IU is among the most well-known and well-regarded leaders in the development of science gateways that are a critical part of research cyberinfrastructure,” said Craig A. Stewart, IU associate dean for research technologies and executive director of the Pervasive Technology Institute.
