About Us

Research Interfaces focuses on disseminating basic research

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

We sift through 1000s of research articles related to lithium-ion batteries, analyze them, and select those that we think are commercially relevant. Every month! Then we categorize them, include interesting news you should not miss, and squeeze all this content into our comprehensive yet digestive literature reviews. So you stay updated and nothing important gets lost.
