    Flaér
    Flaér, a performance cycling brand Sought academic expertise to conduct aerodynamic testing to better understand the performance benefits of their Revo Via product and establish what drag their system would create on a road bike. Through Interface they accessed a wind tunnel facility at the University of Glasgow.

    Sunamp
    Sunamp, develop heat batteries that store energy as heat which can be released on-demand to provide heat and hot water, was connected through Interface to the University of Edinburgh in 2010. The project proved the concept of the most stable, heat energy storage material for the company.
