Collaborative R&D

We Build and Lead technology development collaborations

We recruit, organize and manage consortia of industry and academic partners, overcoming traditional barriers to teaming such as geographical and organizational divides and intellectual property issues. We help team members – often competitors - reach consensus, establish priorities and produce technology solutions for our federal clients.
