About Us

Research Interfaces focuses on disseminating basic research

Our mission is to strengthen knowledge transfer between academia, industry, and governments by highlighting research that has the potential to make an impact. Academic research is essential for innovation and policy-making, but too much good work is being lost in the current information overload. We want to change this.


Research Interfaces is based in Montreal, Canada. Our team consists of full-time and part-time experts from diverse backgrounds. The initiative’s founder, Peter Kovacik, holds a Ph.D. from the University of Oxford and has more than a decade of experience in research and development of energy technologies.
