Xerox Funds 10 University Basic Research Projects

Xerox Corp. granted about $200,000 to support 10 new research projects at universities in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. The contributions are among the Xerox Foundation’s $1 million annual contribution to fund research grants and its annual $13 million investment in support of educational and nonprofit initiatives. The grants are part of Xerox’s University Affairs Committee program, which aims to advance science, technology, and management research by promoting interaction between Xerox researchers and their counterparts at universities.

The research is oriented toward basic science in a variety of fields, as opposed to next-generation technology related to document processing systems and software. Among the projects receiving funding from the company are: a UC Berkeley experiment to understand the interactions between ink and printheads; a Purdue University project to investigate how a computer can classify an image to optimize processing speed and quality; and a Lancaster University study on the “Technologies of Leadership,” a work practice investigation into the practical work of leadership, especially regarding use of documents.
