About us

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 15+ million members. We strive to help them make progress happen faster.
