Lewis-Burke helped a university client establish partnerships with national labs, industry, and other research universities to successfully compete for a Department of Energy National Quantum Initiative center.

Lewis-Burke provided the university client advance intelligence about the new large-scale center funding opportunity, but to successfully compete for the multi-disciplinary center, the university client needed to establish partnerships with other institutions and organizations.

Lewis-Burke leveraged existing relationships and connections to national laboratories, private businesses, and other research universities with complementary capabilities and talent to help the university client pursue the right partnerships to successfully compete and have a leading role in the proposal.

Throughout the process Lewis-Burke not only identified and provided contact information for leading researchers and decision-makers at various organizations, but also provided advice on which strategic thrusts to emphasize and claim ownership based on competitive advantage.
