HP cuts in R&D

Posted on Sunday, Jul 24 2005 @ 20:21 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
HP's restructuring plan cut 14,500 jobs last week and it seems they also cancelled four major research projects.

According to the report, about 10 percent, or 70 of H-P Labs' 700 employees worldwide are slated to receive layoff notices, though some may find jobs elsewhere in the company.

The discontinued projects are: Kay's Advanced Software Research team, HP's Cambridge Research Lab which studied health-related technology, the Consumer Applications and Systems Laboratory and the Emerging Technologies Laboratory. More details at EE Times
