Our Story 

ResearchGate was founded in 2008 by three friends who believed it was possible to connect all of the world’s scientists. 

We started out with just a handful of members. By 2011, one million ResearchGate members discussed their research questions and shared advice on the then newly launched forums. 

Today, 18 million scientists connect on the network, collaborate, and share their research. They report on their research as it happens and get feedback to make progress faster. They post 500 questions and give 2000 answers daily. They find jobs that fit their interests and research profiles. They connect to universities and companies through advertising solutions. 

We’re now closer than ever to fulfilling our mission to connect the world of science and make research open to all.
