German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Federal Minister Philipp Rösler to visit ResearchGate

We’re thrilled to announce that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Federal Minister of Economics and Technology Philipp Rösler will visit the ResearchGate HQ on March 7th.

It’s a great honor to welcome these political figures to our offices in Berlin and we look forward to a rewarding exchange with them.

We’re proud to have this opportunity to present ResearchGate’s role in leading science into the digital age. Ijad says: “The visit of Chancellor Merkel and Minister Rösler shows us that we’re on the right path – as trailblazers both in science and in the German startup scene.”

Our investors Matt Cohler of Benchmark (early employee of Facebook, co-founder of LinkedIn), Luke Nosek of Founders Fund (co-founder of PayPal) and Joachim Schoss (founder Scout24 group) are also excited to greet the chancellor and minister at the event.

We’ll be sure to tell you all about the visit, so stay posted for some photos and a recap of the event!
