[ResearchGate News, June 26, 2013]

Dear ResearchGate members,

Five years and one month after the first researcher signed up on May 28, 2008, ResearchGate has reached three million members. This means the world to me, and I want to say:

Thank you for being a part of ResearchGate!

I had the idea for ResearchGate when I was working in the lab and couldn't find an answer to a question I was struggling with. So with my friends Sören Hofmayer and Horst Fickenscher, I set out to provide you with a new infrastructure to keep you from experiencing the same isolation I experienced, and to help you find partners to collaborate with.

A social scientific network that attemps to stimulate industry-academic laboratories collaborations | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Enlight Biosciences, a Boston-based company, is launching Knode: an internet platform dedicated to help industry scientists to interact and identify partners in academic laboratories interested in translation. Focused on the biomedical research field, the site enables networking between translational researchers by providing profiles of scientists, listing specialties, patents, grants and publications. Others services have been also aimed to galavanize interactions among those researchers, including BiomedExperts, ResearchGate, iamscientist. They have common themes, such as enabling researchers to share information, data, follow competitors, form collaborative groups and even engage donors to fund projects. Knode is also in that process of adding additionnals features, including the ability for scientists to list technologies or assets they have available for licencing. Knode has generated some high-profiles partners from the academic side, includng University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

Two Million Members, Two Million Stories - ResearchGate News


Today marks a pretty exciting day for all of us here at ResearchGate HQ. We’re welcoming our two millionth member to the network and we couldn’t be happier about it.

Back in May 2008 a few curious researchers logged onto the newly launched ResearchGate and were obviously as convinced as we were that this was something big. They invited their colleagues, collaborated, and built strong connections that kept them coming back. Needless to say we happily and steadily grew. (...)
