FXPAL actively engages with academic partners, licensing partners, and the open source community.

“Notice: FX Palo Alto Laboratory will be closing. All Research and related operations will cease as of June 30, 2020.”

Academic Collaboration

FXPAL collaborates with universities and academic institutions in a number of ways. We have a year-round intern program and employ students from universities worldwide including Europe, Asia, and the United States. We have a postdoctoral fellow program that allows national and international researchers to experience industrial research in Silicon Valley for one to three years after completion of their Ph.D. We collaborate with professors at major universities on current research at FXPAL and fund basic research in areas of interest to Fuji Xerox. In addition, FXPAL members hold honorary faculty positions.

FXPAL has developed numerous leading-edge technologies that are now available for license. Licensing technology from FXPAL is a cost-effective alternative to independently developing a similar asset. Our relationships with our licensees extend to ensure mutual success.

For more information visit FXPAL’s Licensing page or contact our Business Development Team.

Open Source

FXPAL benefits immensely from the availability of a range of open sourced projects. Rather than continuously re-inventing the wheel, these projects let us focus on advancing the state of the art.

Our open source effort attempts to return something back to the community. Most of our projects are released under a open NEW BSD license; the specific licensing terms are discussed in further details for each project. We hope that others will benefit from, further enhance and share these projects for wider impact. To provide feedback, please visit the individual project page for the contact information.
