20 Years of Innovation in Europe
Xerox Research Centre Europe was created 20 years ago to conduct breakthrough research that would support Xerox in transitioning to a services company.Today over half of Xerox’s revenue comes from a broad range of services including managed print, healthcare,transportation, customer care, information technology and government.
The centre is celebrated these two decades of innovation in different ways throughout the year of 2013. Scientists wrote a series of articles that express their passion on a research topic. We hosted distinguished speakers who presented their research in open house seminars. We produced a book and invited guests in October to debate the future of IT research, show our thought leadership in inspiring presentations and demonstrate the impact of our results in the technology demo fair. Links to all of this material is below
Articles: 13 XRCE anniversary articles.These pieces authored by our researchers are about movements or trend, opinion pieces or tributes. These articles were compiled and included in the 20th anniversary book created for the event.
