ResearchGATE CEO to give his thoughts at next Harvard panel discussion.

Ijad Madisch, CEO and Co-Founder of ResearchGATE, will be part of a panel discussion at The German Conference at Harvard on “Where is the Next Harvard? Future Excellence in Scientific Research,” Saturday, February 20th 2010 from 1:30pm to 3pm ET at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA.

Participants on the panel are: Matthias Kleiner, e "Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft" (DFG), Germany's leading source of funding for scientific research, Ursula Gather, TU Dortmund University, and Philip G. Altbach, Director of the Center for International Higher Education (CIHE), Boston College

The conference will focus on how the global competition between universities and research institutions on the turf of scientific research has increased in the last couple of years. The war of talents became a war of institutions. The economic crisis affected universities around the globe, particularly in the United States, with endowments shrunk and engagements postponed. Ijad will discuss his thoughts on what the university of the future should look like. What role will research institutions play? Where will the next Harvard be? In China, India, Germany, or in Cambridge, MA?
