Session Abstract:
Sustaining our data resources is part of the bigger issue of sustaining all research products. As we contemplate technologies to enable this, we must also consider organizational and financial enablements. The Science Gateway Community Institute recently conducted a session to work on characterizing 11 ESIP related projects in terms of concepts borrowed from entrepreneurship. This panel will focus on discussion of some of those results and their applicability in a broader sense to sustainable data infrastructures and repositories.

Session Takeaways (post-meeting):
1) The Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) aims to connect resources and data to science authors by providing a gateway catalog of gateways related to teaching, research, and learning.
2) SGCI hosts a Science Gateways Bootcamp which is a 5 day bootcamp to help participants develop the framework for: generating pitches, developing communication skills, bringing an idea to fruition, selling the idea, setting goals, and producing deliverables.
3) Bootcamp pitches aim to service the needs of a variety of communities (ex. teachers, crop map stakeholders, ESIP, repositories, and data providers), improving data accessibility and usability within these communities.
