 Palo Alto Research Center
The Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), a subsidiary of Xerox Corporation, conducts pioneering interdisciplinary research in physical, computational, and social sciences.
Building on our three-decade tradition of innovation, PARC works with Xerox and other strategic partners to commercialize technologies created by our renowned scientists.
As the birthplace of technologies such as laser printing, Ethernet, the graphical user interface, and ubiquitous computing, PARC has an established track record for transforming industries and creating commercial value.

 Xerox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As a symbol of this transformation, the relative size of the word "Xerox" was increased in proportion to "The Document Company" on the corporate signature and the latter was dropped altogether in September 2004, along with the digital X. However, the digital X and "The Document Company" are still used by Fuji Xerox.
Many technologies developed largely by PARC were ignored by Xerox and made their way into other companies' products—for instance, Ethernet, the WIMP interface, and personal computers.
Xerox shifted its business model in the 1970s and 1980s as patent expiry removed exclusivity from their copier technology, and diversification plans largely did not succeed.

For a period of eight years from 1990, the concession for Parc des Princes was entrusted by the City of Paris to the SESE (A company that organises sporting events), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the French Television Company Canal +.

Now, more than ever before, PSG is closely linked to Parc des Princes, as is the earnest wish of the Paris club directors along with all the employees in the special setting of Parc des Princes.

Perhaps the strongest push in progress at PARC is in artificial intelligence, where the company is marketing Dandelion and Dorado computers that run Interlisp, along with PARC-developed Al tools, including Loops, a software system that lets knowledge-engineers combine rule-based expert systems with object-oriented programming and other useful styles of knowledge representation.
PARC hired many of its earliest employees right out of graduate school; they were roughly the same age as one another, and their careers matured along with PARC.
While researchers in PARC's Computer Science Laboratory were completing the MAXC and beginning to use it, their counterparts in the Systems Science Laboratory were putting together a distributedcomputer system using Nova 800 processors and a high-speed character generator.

What happened instead was that PARC itself outshone the acquired company and for a corporation that built up its name in the photocopier business, it caused many problems.
The story is really set in the 1970s and 1980s when Xerox set up PARC really to support a newly acquired computer company SDS.
The other problem with marketing the products from PARC was the blindness of the company, including its brilliant researchers, toward the revolution happening right outside their door with small computers.

 Standing Committee on Public Accounts Third Report
Furthermore, when the Parc Downsview Park Inc. decided to sell a portion of surplus properties to a private sector company, contrary to normal practice, the proceeds of the transaction were not deposited in the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF), instead they were spent on the development and operational activities of the urban park.
For example, Parc Downsview Park Inc. was intended to be eligible to receive charitable donations to support its activities; but because it is a commercial, for-profit corporation, it is not a “qualified donee” for income tax purposes.
Although Parc Downsview Park Inc. was established according to all applicable rules and regulations, its creation, by Order-in-Council, as a subsidiary Crown corporation to manage the urban park was a move that effectively excluded Parliament from the decision-making process.
