Science Gateways Bootcamp (Focus Week) Brain Trust: A Problem-Solving Workshop

This session is a repeat of the morning session. Attend one or attend both!

The Science Gateways Bootcamp [now Gateway Focus Week] is designed to help teams in any stage of development for their gateway project - from planning to developing to maintaining their gateway. Principal Investigators and their teams learn core business strategy skills, best practices, and long-term sustainability strategies. Participants engage in hands-on activities to help them articulate the value of their work to key stakeholders and to create a strong development, operations, and sustainability plan.

Bootcamp participants work closely with one another and, as a result, have the opportunity to network and establish relationships with people who are engaging in similar activities. Since the first Bootcamp in April 2017, 210 participants have gone through the Bootcamp curriculum. Those participants have expressed that they find value to the work of their gateway to keep in touch with members of their cohort. They have also expressed interest in diving deeper into their problems and receiving feedback from their cohort and the instructors. This three-hour workshop will enable Bootcamp alumni an opportunity to participate in a "Brain Trust" exercise with members of their cohort and other cohorts as well as other conference participants. Through this exercise, alumni will share a problem they are facing and receive recommendations from their peers on how to approach the issue. Alumni and other participants will share ideas of how to resolve the issue along with commitments to help work towards a solution. Bootcamp instructors will lead this engagement and guide the exercise. We expect to moderate up to six teams per three-hour session. All participants will leave with a new tool for problem solving.

Prerequisites: Prior participation in Bootcamp/Focus Week is encouraged but not expected. No laptop is needed.
