Analysis of nanoHUB.org from a Business Perspective

Science Gateways are typically implemented by scientists and cyberinfrastructure experts to serve a specific, externally-funded scientific focus. Sustainability of those gateways and the knowledge and tools they contain continues to be of strong interest to both the gateways and the funding agencies that support their creation and initial operation. nanoHUB.org is an established gateway entering its 15th year of operation and now serving over 1.4 million visitors annually. The leadership at nanoHUB have utilized a partnership with Purdue’s Krannert School of Management to collaborate on examining nanoHUB from a business perspective. The results of these collaborations are outlined in this extended abstract and will be expanded upon in the corresponding presentation.
