The Xerox Research Centre Europe has been a partner of many European Union projects and French Government projects (e.g. ANR) since the 90s. The Centre currently collaborates with more than 100 institutions from 25 nations in government projects including H2020 but also through other business partnerships and the Xerox Foundation .

Working with other people and organisations is an important part of everyday life at the European Xerox Research Centre to both advance scientific research and improve innovation impact in the market. 

XRCE has approximately 100 researchers and developers whose domains of research stretch from the social sciences to artificial intelligence. We have internationally renowned expertise in machine learning , natural language processing , computer vision , ethnography as well as data, service and process intelligence . Our people and our research are regularly recognized and awarded in international scientific conferences and industry forums. Our scientific and technical publications can be viewed in our online database .

H2020, Framework Programme (FP) and French Government Projects XRCE


READ (Recognition and Enrichment of Archival Documents)  This project will implement a Virtual Research Environment where archivists, humanities scholars, computer scientists and volunteers collaborate with the ultimate goal of boosting research, innovation, development and usage of cutting edge technology for the automated recognition, transcription, indexing and enrichment of handwritten archival documents.
  XRCE expertise: Document understanding, document layout analysis
EU framework: H2020, e-infrastructure
Social: @Transkribus
ALICIA (Adaptive Learning for Intelligent Crowdsourcing and Information Access) This project studies models and algorithms that rely on adaptive learning techniques to improve the effectiveness, performance, and scalability of user-centric applications in information access and intelligent crowdsourcing.
  XRCE expertise: Adaptive learning, social media analytics, recommendation systems
French Government: ANR Programme, CONTINT (2014 – 2018)
MOBINET   is an open, multi-vendor platform for Europe-wide mobility services (MaaS) coordinated by ERTICO-ITS Europe .  The goal is to develop, deploy and operate the technical and organisational foundations of an open, multi-vendor platform for Europe-wide mobility services. Key MOBiNET innovations address the barriers to cooperative system-enabled service deployment, including the lack of harmonised services; availability of communication means; inaccessibility and incompatibility of transport-related data; fragmentation of end-user subscription and payment services; proprietary technologies in user devices etc.
  XRCE expertise: software architecture and privacy , transportation services
EU framework: 7th RTD FP. Cooperative Systems for energy efficient and sustainable mobility

PERICLES (Promoting and Enhancing Reuse of Information throughout the Content Lifecycle taking account of Evolving Semantics)  The goal of the project is to ensure that digital assets (e.g. data sets, software, media, etc.) created today will continue to be available and useful for future generations.
  XRCE expertise: dependency modeling and change management, using Semantic Web tools and standards. Received best paper award at ICSOFT 2015 .
EU framework: FPT ICT

EURECA is a EU project with the aim to build software solutions to improve interoperability among existing data systems, such as clinical trials and electronic health record systems.  Oncology has been selected as the focus domain because of the incidence of cancers, the complexity of data collected and of the therapy options. As a partner XRCE will be using its natural language processing expertise and technologies to automatically extract and semantically tag relevant medical concepts and relations from the unstructured text in patient records, clinical guidelines and trials and medical scientific literature.
  XRCE expertise: natural language processing, knowledge extraction
EU framework: FP7 ICT
