ResearchGate is built by scientists, for scientists.

It started when two researchers discovered first-hand that collaborating with a friend or colleague on the other side of the world was no easy task.

Founded in 2008 by physicians Dr. Ijad Madisch and Dr. Sören Hofmayer, and computer scientist Horst Fickenscher, ResearchGate today has more than 14+ million members. We strive to help them make progress happen faster.
Our mission

Our mission is to connect the world of science and make research open to all.
