Science and Technology
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. This is why The Xerox Foundation supports many such organizations, including the University of Rochester, New York Hall of Science and Cornell Tech.
In 2016, Xerox invested $900,000 in The University Affairs Committee, an effort aligned with the long-term strategic interests of Xerox and is championed by a Xerox employee. It is governed by a committee of Xerox researchers and scientists from around the world. The program recommended 30 grants to university science programs, including nine international universities.
In addition, Xerox scientists and the professors we funded co-authored and published 10 research papers in leading academic journals. Xerox hosted 11 visits and researchers made 37 personal visits to universities in the United States and internationally, as well as 60 remote visits. In 2016, Xerox hosted nine interns.
