The STARnet Gateway Federation is a unique example of a federated network of science gateways based on WS-PGRADE/gUSE technologies, and explicitly designed and tuned to the needs of the astronomical and astrophysical (A&A) community in Europe. The use of a federated gateway infrastructure allows scientists to explore new collaboration opportunities and advancing the scientific research activity within A&A. STARnet Gateways share a common authentication system, a distributed computing infrastructure, data archives, portlets, and workflow repositories. Building upon these technologies, a number of challenging applications from different A&A domains have been successfully prototyped and tested.
