While much of the adoption and diffusion of science gateways and/or computational tools for e-science is driven by the attributes of the tools [see 1], the organizations behind the tools play a critical role in determining the ultimate diffusion. This paper reports 10 organizational attributes of successful gateways and cyberinfrastructure projects. Based on a systematic analysis of 135 interviews, the organizational attributes include having leaders with credibility, multidisciplinary expertise, collaborative environment, shared goals, a common language, strategic structure, productive routines, organizational capacity, sustainable funding, and personnel continuity.
