Lewis-Burke worked closely with a major university cyber infrastructure project that was coming to the end of its initial 10-year funding.

Lewis-Burke developed a strategy to raise the profile of the project across its home agency, as well as other federal funding agencies and the research community at large.  Following initial implementation of this strategy, the project has been praised throughout a number of discipline areas at its home funding agency and has become a model of best practice in its field.

Following the implementation of the Lewis-Burke advocacy strategy, the project was invited to submit a non-competitive renewal proposal. Building on this initial success, Lewis-Burke has worked with the university to raise the profile of the project to solidify core funding and to engage on new funding opportunities at other agencies to ensure sustainability of the project.
