At Xerox, innovation is our foundation for success. Academic organizations play an important role in the long-term strategic interests of the company by furthering scientific research and training the next generation of scientists. In 2015, Xerox scientists championed 32 grants to 26 different universities — 17 located in the U.S., and nine worldwide.

Grants worth more than $1.2 million were recommended to university science programs by the Xerox University Affairs Committee, which consists of a dozen Xerox scientists from the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom.

Our scientists, and the professors we funded, co-authored and published 20 research papers in leading academic journals.

Academic organizations play an important role in the long-term strategic interests of the company by furthering scientific research and training the next generation of scientists. This is why The Xerox Foundation supports many such organizations, including the University of Rochester and the University of Rochester/Wilmot Cancer Institute, the New York Hall of Science and the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.

In 2015, Xerox hosted 12 visits and researchers made 19 personal visits to universities in the U.S. and internationally, as well as 55 remote visits. As a result of the grant program, Xerox hosted eight interns in 2015.
